…this is a sort of a before and after of children getting out of school. The street corner is reasonably deserted 5 minutes before school is dismissed. Note the area between the Muslim lady in black and the woman to the right in a green and brown striped shirt down to the leaning power pole by her feet.
NOW LOOK! The lollie street vender in brown hat shows up, sets up shop with sugar sweets for the school kids leaving school half a block away who come for their sweet fix. If you are asleep iike I was, trying to get over jet lag then the volume of noise from excited children wakes you up (I am half a block away with windows and door closed). How many children are in the photo? This whole event lasts about 15 minutes every school day with other kids replacing the existing kids buying sweets and then the kids vanish and the street life resumes. Who says sugar is not more addictive than heroin?
In both photos to the right you can make out the “bike shop” – just to the right of the white sack laying on the ground, where you bring your bike to have it fixed on the spot.
The blue toyota van with the yellow stripe (colour means nothing) is a van converted to a taxi where by the fit 15 people into it!
