meet the locals

A couple of locals at a neighborhood coffee shop. The dog is a labrador crossed with something larger. He’s aged around 2. The owner found him wandering the streets a year ago, and managed to contact the owners. They didn’t want the dog. So he kept him. The dog wanders around the coffee shop to say hello to everyone.

Dogs are popular here and they are allowed into restaurants, cafes etc. There are a few local characters with dogs. There was one guy – I haven’t seen him lately – who had six huge white dogs. They would travel in a pack. I’d see them – the dogs not the guy – cooling off by splashing around in the fountain near the Hassan Bek Mosque.
