Thanks to jacquelineOby Echoes of my neighborhood, with this initiative, I have become more and more conscious of my environment in a way that even the mundane things means a great deal.
Things are not always what it seem, depending on the perspective you have about such things. Today’s echo came from the blurring sound of the local I ice-cream man, trying to sell off his ice-cream to the wonderful patronage of children coming back home from school.
In a typical Lagos School (public and sometimes private), you will see Ice – cream vendors, snack vendors etc at the school waiting for the school children to come after the school day is over. There is this excitement every time when both parties meet to exchange money for all the snacking and vice Versa.
These pictures of the children and the Ice cream vendor with his truck brought memories of my elementary school days when I used to long for the day to be over so that I can buy some sweets and ice cream from the pocket money given to me.
It is the after-school activities like this that propelled many of us to always look forward to school, despite whining and murmuring when we are woken up to get ready for school back in this day.
Can you relate to this pictures?
