'
second hand furniture and furniture  repair shop
'
Yet another spice stall  silly place to have one realy it will be in full sun for most of the hot afternoon sun.
 that takes all the flavor and discolors the spice.

'
A restaurant and cafe all in one  they have even started calling side streets lanes what next?


'
Seems this shop does not know how much discount to give, I suppose it depends on how much you are willing to pay and the country you come from. 
.
More balconies love the woodwork designes on them Its a pity they do not know how to re varnish them 


.
The horse and cart was used to move my furniture 

.
This is an area bexhind my new home
