... pride. A shoemaker’s tools stood alongside a yarn weaver next to a 1620 icon of the Virgin Mary next to church books from 1790 next to an 1835 chalice next to an undated stone field marker next to pistols & rifles used to fight the Ottomans. No rhyme or reason but wonderful.

U/K thought they were already scoping out their complaint letter to Explore and she [and I] would counter them; some trip ...
