Nice dinner at Tran Tran in Victoria Street Sunday night and walked the street afterwards. Boy was the street a mess, but not as bad as it will be next Sunday when the lunar new year is celebrated.
I believe there is a window cleaner who works Victoria St, but only every third Thursday afternoon, if required.
Partner and friends decided they needed a gelati, as if they hadn't eaten enough already. Not my favourite thing, so I declined and waited outside. In the couple of minutes they were inside, twice I was asked for money. What is about me? Why am seen as such a soft touch? I need to develop a, 'don't f***ing well speak to me c***', expression I think. Trouble is, they always catch me offguard.
I have never noticed it in Victoria St before, but there did seem to be some open dealing happening and some pretty obvious users around.
It was the quietest I have seen Tran Tran, and many other places were empty, although there were some very full restaurants. I wonder if the the lack of customers for the restaurants and the drug business could be connected. I used to enjoy our strolls down Victoria Street, but I will think twice about it next time.
