oh, that wind was bitter
on my cheeks and even
that extra sweater
i threw on underneath
wasn't doing the trick.
of course it was 
the day i decided
to do my running 
around on foot.
when i stumbled upon
that starbucks that
opened recently,
the first in russia,
my, what a welcome sight.

i ordered myself
a small carmel 
hot chocolate and 
spinach danish
and was already
when i realized my
drink cost nearly
eight dollars.

i didn't care.
it was
and kept me
until my 
next destination.

how great is hot chocolate on such winter day? let alone, caramel hot chocolate! it is delish. and such a refuge is always welcome in such dismal and undesirable circumstances. good to see that starbucks is reaching every corner of the earth now...

great hot chocolate - very over priced.
