Café Royale

The Sri Lankan man in the fez I featured yesterday works here, at this outside café squished between two high risers. There are many of these ‘mini oasis’ dotted about the city, all with their trellised fences and manicured lawns. This one even has its own tree. Although quiet during the day these cafés come alive at night, mostly with groups of men smoking shisha. The waft of which can be smelt a mile off. My favourite waft is apricot & strawberry.

Really nice. I would love to see a photo of it at night to see all of what you said. It must look very interesting.
