 This young woman is Dragana, who works in a coffee shop around the corner from me. I pass by nearly every day and occasionally buy some of their wonderful ground coffee. Dragana and Madhu have a love affair of sorts, since Dragana always has some small doggie treats for her. At night when the shop is closed, I have to be careful not to walk by, since Madhu sits and stares through the glass doors, waiting....and is so disappointed she's not there. I carry the same treats and give her one, and we move on.


 Edit: pastis is a licorice-flavored alcoholic drinksimilar to Greek ouzo. My favorite drink as it is for many people in this area. No more ...
