Today is some kind of holiday. Buddhists are burning fake money (notice the Benjamin Franklin going in the flames), and signs that say “Range Rover” or “Mercedes”. I guess in hope of getting one in their next life. Very hopeless. Notice the little girl behind the glass case, learning from her mom.

Maybe they had one of these machines to build the Great Pyramid? I couldn’t get the shot, but there were a couple of guys in hammocks underneath the massive stones, in the shade, taking a break.

You can get anything you want, at Alice’s restaurant. It’s a niche market.
