47/366 – Feb 27, 2012
Had to go to the nearby mall today to run some quick errands. The contrast between the weekend and a week-day (well, night) at this mall is really striking. At the mall, they have this small “playground” where a few rides for children have been set up. On weekdays, the area is choc-a-bloc with kids queuing up for the rides and their doting parents waiting in the sidelines. Today, there was just the staff milling around the “playground”.
It is a bit sad how malls have become “playgrounds” for kids in today’s age (I know, I sound like a grandmother!!!!!). Maybe on weekdays they play in the streets by their houses and on weekends, their parents treat them to the “playground” at the mall. For that, and many other reasons, I am glad that I was born the year I was. 🙂
Anyway, sharing another picture of the “playground” and an interesting window display I saw at the Mineral store.
