Saturday’s are a bit quiet, but not as quiet as Sunday when nearly EVERYthing is closed (like back in the olden days when I was a kid)!! Last Sunday since there was NOTHING going on in town, I decided to go to a movie theater at a small mall close by and see a movie in English (sub-titled in Spanish). It was $4.50 for the movie, and $2 for a LARGE popcorn. $6.50 for something back home would cost nearly $20 (because you have to pay to park, too). They offered various combo’s too. For $6 you could get a medium popcorn, a hot dog, 2 chocolate bars, and a drink. That would require a 2nd mortgage in the
Oh, before I forget, I’m going to digress for a sec because I mentioned parking a few sentences ago. There are NO parking meters ANYWHERE here. NICE.
Most shops close at on Saturdays. I went to open a POB but the
PO was closed, so I sauntered by shops and examined the variety of motorcycles for sale. It’s so weird here that there’s no rhyme or reason to what a store might sell. For example, you can wander into a store and buy a motorcycle, a refrigerator, and a fifth of vodka. Go figure. Most of the downtown stores don’t sell motorcycles larger than 250 cc’s. To give you a perspective, my bike in was 1500 cc’s. The smaller bikes are great for bopping around town, but it you want to venture outside the city it’s best to have something larger. So, a vendor told me of a store out by the airport. I summoned a taxi and he drove me to the well-known store. More weirdness. At this store, not only can you buy a motorcycle, but also a violin, a chandelier, a couch, a chainsaw, or silverware!!! Bremerton
