Recent photos have shown the grand old shops that the Chinese traders opened in the early days. Here is a present day shopkeeper, Chinese, standing at the small door used after dark to provide security at his corner store. I didn't like to ask whether or not he had been robbed before this.
Bloggers are featuring the corner shop at present.

Hi Julia! Sorry for the speedy visit! I’ve been busy the whole last week and will be out in the next, so this is far less than your blog deserves… ;(( But I promise I’ll come back with more time after June 10th, at least…
However, to avoid leaving you deserted, I published a last post on Marrakesh 2006 at Blogtrotter. Enjoy!

Julia, I'm a day late in visiting. I see the lotto tickets which seem to be a common sight around the world. Personally I don't play the lotto however my dad loved it.
