At the very end of my international travel year, I spent a few blissful whirlwind days in
-what is now one of my favorite towns on earth-
We rode bicycles all around the old parts of the city,
whizzing by grandparents holding hands with their grandchildren,
slowing down to peer through gates hiding secret bamboo gardens.
This housefront clearly won the container gardening category.
