beautifully designed contraption can slow the pace of your life
down a few notches. It's an outdoor, handmade fireplace called
a chimenea. Outdoors is where the fireplace belongs. We bought
ours at Animas
Traders on South Clinton in Rochester. Jim, the
owner, bought about a hundred of them on his last trip to Mexico.
I don't know if fires are even legal in the city. We have had
five fires in it so far and we're running out of wood. We've
started picking up wood in our neighborhood when we're out.
Maybe another ice storm will bring some down.
