NaifMay 9, 2009
I was feeling like we hadn’t had an adventure lately. Or maybe our adventures are getting too tame. Daddybird declared that we were going to take a walk in Naif, a nearby neighborhood. We had dinner at “Asia Restaurant.” Using Asia in the most liberal way. It was Indian food. I had “chicken fry” which is almost out of the picture – a skinless wing and breast cooked crispy and tasty. Daddybird had chicken biryani. The plate with tomatoes on it is actually chopped cabbage, carrots, cucumbers, onions and tomatoes. The bread is freshly made flat bread. Does this look like $7.00 worth of food?
A common site in Naif is the gathering of hand trucks chained to a street sign. Apparently, this is how they store them when not in use. During the day there are guys moving goods from place to place with these hand trucks.
Here’s the Picadilly Hotel sign with a cupid. Not sure why they chose a cupid.
Someday I will do a montage of business signs. There seem to be three types – straightforward but boring business names, overly creative business names that tell you noting about the nature of the business, and those that seem like a really bad idea (like Exit Restaurant). This is one of those straightforward ones. Smokers Centre.
This last picture makes the whole evening worthwhile. Maybe I’ve been watching too many episodes of the Electric Company that Daddybird got from Itunes. I used to love that show as a kid. It is still great and entertaining. Anyway, I love this sign. It says is all.
