A female vocalist sang American Oldies beautifully.
Vincent bought a CD from her.
Got direction to the supermarket (to buy coffee).
But no coffee beans. They were all ground coffee.
We picked a few bags of different brands.
How was it? They were ground very finely, like flour.
Of the two bags opened so far, both were strong, one had charcoal flavor.
But all were interesting to us.
A very cute boutique shop.
Lovely display outside a shop.
