Countless fur coats. I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many full on, ankle length fur coats. They looked warm, certainly. But a little out of place? Or perhaps my down puffer was out of place?
5 or 6 llamas – not counting the two my husband and I were wearing. Sure, others had “ski hats” but a few privileged ones had the real deal Andean gear.
2 hand warmers. The very cute, very petite woman in the fur trimmed coat, skinny jeans and suede boots, her boyfriend and his friend had only 2 handwarmers for the 3 of them. I’ll take them both then, she says sugary sweet.
1 stairwell trimmed in red bunting. If you squint, you can see the bunting, but you can’t make out anything standing under it.
Priceless: being there with everyone else, straining to see the man standing in front of the red bunting, hand on Lincoln’s bible.
