Turkey in the Morning, Barcelona in the Evening

As I responded to the Turkish doctor last night, I received another email from him upon awakening this morning.  He said he would be glad to send me some Turkish delight now IF I can’t wait until March.  He also said that he would know the exact dates for his trip to Chicago in a couple of weeks.  He was shocked that I asked about his mother in last night’s email.   I’m not sure what made me ask him about her but I’m glad I did as he took time in explaining how she was coping with her MS, a disease she has had for 20 years.  Since I’m sure the Turkish doctor is busy with his work schedule, I will wait until March for him to personally bring me some Turkish delight. 

Because I went to bed with sweets on my mind, I woke up, of course, wanting something sweet sometime during the day.  I didn’t get a chance to get my sweet fix until after I got off work, and I ended up walking into Vosges Haut-Chocolat.  And there I saw a chocolate skull lollipop called “Barcelona!”  Of course, I had to buy one.  When I got home I Googled the owner of the chocolatier, Katrina Markoff, and it turns out that she started her career in Spain, being inspired by her travels to create unique flavors.  Wow!  I want to be her BFF! 

While walking home I thought about my Barcelona lollipop as well as all the beautiful thoughts of my travel there.  Then I realized that I must share my souvenir that I brought back.  As today’s weather in Chicago dipped more than 30 degrees from yesterday’s temps, I absolutely missed Barcelona’s spectacular weather.  I MISS BARCELONA!  Period!
