Where's Waldo's balcony?

Let's play a game.

Actually, I thought this was funny. And terribly sad at the same time. Not just regular sad. A place like this in Mexico, every balcony will be loaded with flowering plants. Often the same type. You see that a lot. It creates a wall of hanging plants like people imagine Nebuchadnezzar's hanging garden of Babylon.

While in Tokyo a similar place will be loaded with bamboo poles suspended horizontally and used each day as clotheslines to air out their sleeping quilts. Or else dry out their clothes. So you see quilts and clothes hanging all over the place. Every single apartment. Everyone doing the same thing.

While in Denver you see everyone's bicycles, their fake plants that bloom even in winter, and their cheap outdoor furniture.

It's the beginning of the end of the season. Days are shorter and nights are cooler. This little aerie is not long for the world.

And that's a good thing because I'm getting really tired of being water boy every day.

Clearly superior balcony. Looks great and, bonus, added privacy!
