Tonight I could see our home off in the distance while we were visiting some friends...we live in the red-roofed houses in the middle of the picture. We're a bit off the beaten track and it's pretty quiet back against the hill...a good thing.
Well, this is one way to transport your goods! Georgetown is full of all types of random transportation, and it's not unusual to see them abandoned in the middle of the street like this. (Temporarily abandoned...I assume they come back eventually!)
As Josh was talking tonight about college applications and what accomplishments he would be
able to put on them, it reminded me of this business card he made ten years ago, and that I still
carry in my wallet. I think he's got a few more things to add to his resume now!
I love buying fresh fruit and vegetables at the morning 'wet market'. Chicken....not so much. The reaching and 'pleading' chicken feet are a little much for me. And can you see the toenails??? Glad Bob does the chicken buying around our house...
After a meeting at a local hotel tonight, I walked down to take my daily picture and ended up
chatting for a few minutes with a woman who was from Canada...she actually spent 30 years in
Ajax, ON, where we lived many years ago. Small world moment!
Scooters and motorbikes are a common form of transportation here on the island - they're handy for weaving in and out during traffic jams, going the wrong way down the road and driving on sidewalks, too!
This huge blow-up guy is another of the Chinese New Year decorations still around town....and he had his own babysitter with him!
(grainy phone picture since I left the card for my camera sitting on the coffee table....)
