Scenes from my neighbourhood

The Roti Man is still around selling all sorts of buns, bread and snacks on his motorcycle. It is becoming a rare sight now. Where I grew up, the roti man would come by every evening selling roti. His wares are a little different now but he is still welcomed every evening. Children run to greet him to buy all sorts of snacks. We use to buy our daily supply of bread from him and I would sometimes treat myself to some coconut buns. I sometimes long for it. What is amazing is how he balances all those bags on his bike.
