  • The street signs have sponsors

    I guess in order to save the government money they have allowed private companies to attach their company logos to the street signs for a fee! Maybe we should do this here in the states! Probably save us millions per year!! Tiger Beer was one of the main sponsors that I noticed! Ken and Richie would love it here!!

As I watched some of them weave their way from the sidewalk onto the street and back to the sidewalk againg without even looking!!

  • The end of the day

    Even though this photo is a quite a bit over-exposed I wanted to put it here. When I see the photo I can remember the girls standing in the street calling up to someone on the second floor and they were engaged in a colorful conversation and laughing...maybe making plans for the evening...dinner...movie walking to Mahabandoola Gardens ..who...

  • Fruit Vendors

    You can find fruit vendors everywhere!! One thing to possibly worry about is the water that they rinse the fruit in!! Where did it come from? etc... I did eat the fruit without any ill effects...maybe lucky.. I'm not sure. But the fruit is sweet and cheap!!
