This is the little side street that runs behind our building. There are plenty of little restaurants down this road, as well as a couple of hotels and Euromart. It’s a popular area for people to eat, and get a few drinks.

This also happens to be the little road that Dave and I were driving past when we were hit by an e-bike.

Our bike was ok, and Dave was uninjured, but the guy drove directly into my shin. I suppose I was lucky that my leg didn’t break, but that’s not to say the injury wasn’t severe. Even now, a year and a half later, I have bruising, and I’m a bit afraid that the nerve damage will never fully go away.

I call this intersection “Shattered Shin Pass”. My shin may not have actually shattered, but my love for late-night e-bike rides surely did.

Dave and I have been taking a lot of walks lately. We’ve both been working a tonne (as we tend to do), and taking a walk at night allows us to catch up. I think that’s important.

On those walks, we talk about our days and we discuss the news and what’s blowing up on social media. Sometimes I take pictures of ridiculous or interesting things I see.

The funny thing about my feature picture today is that I took it because of the “Honey Babe” sign, but when I looked at the photo a few days later, I noticed so much more.

The photo is from right outside Euromart. I take money out at the little red ATM booth in the middle of the photo. I’ve bought noodles from the little restaurant on the left (they weren’t very good). I’ve walked across that square at least a hundred times and I never noticed how pretty it is at night.

Also, there’s a sign for a bar named “Honey Babe”. That’s pretty funny too.
