...are they really shoes??... technically yes (in my humble opinion). You put them on your feet, they protect them from dust, injuries and the occasional dog pooh on the pavement that went unnoticed (until stepped upon...) and you take them out for sleep... surely these are the universally acknowledged characteristics of shoes...
So, what am I here talking that shoes are better than shoes?? Would be insane... No, dearests. I'm not saying that... and will immediately (and finally) say what I'm saying!
Imagine this.... white sandy beach, clean as can be, leading your steps to an ocean so blue you think that God painted it herself with her watercolours. Sun above, so bright and warm and friendly you just want to start chatting with him. Light breeze, so tender, caressing your body like a lover who is actually into you... (I know... I know... my romantic moment will pass any second now...)
And after a long walk on the sea shore, under the lovely sun, after having enjoyed the blue view and the sound of the waves... then a little restaurant by the beach (well... ON the beach), serving you with the best caipirinha in the world (as I know it...) and sea food to die for!! And then you dig into the plate with the fresh shrimp (that is "medium" in size but almost as big as the havaianas you have on your feet) and savour the taste of the ocean!
And if all that does not sound better than shoes to you, better even than a pair of colour-of-the-rainbow Jimmy Choo sandals, than add a nap on the beach after lunch... falling gently asleep by the sounds of the ocean... That, my friends IS better than shoes! That is life in its best...
