The seeds are sown by me, but the fruits of this adventure are the result of your comments and continued support.

So, I was riding in the hood, minding my business, looking for a sand-dune to attack with my new bike, and I come across a boat parked in between two villas. I don't notice it for long and continue riding past in 3rd gear, looking out for any kids that usually play on that street corner.
So, I do my business in the sand, then I come back, a bit sweatier than usual, and I notice the same boat, in the same place, but now I notice the name. It's called "take five" but transliterated (not translated) into Arabic!!!!
I thought I had to take a picture of this in Arabic to show it to my dear friend Louis. So here it is:
What is infinitely more funny is that after taking that picture, I decided to walk around the boat, and I saw something written in English. So I decided to take a snap:
For those of you who have no clue about the subject matter, the boat owner is obviously a Jazz fan, and he's paying homage to the one and only Dave Brubeck and his time-less classic "Take Five"
Enjoy! Thanks Paul Desmond. Shot in 1961.
FYI, back in the early 2000's, I had the honour to meet the great legend himself LIVE at a concert. He kept us waiting for hours and after more than 12 songs, he played Take Five as his last song. It's a brilliant bloody classic!
In case you can't get enough, here is a more recent clip with better sound quality:
Long live Brubeck!
He almost graduated from music school without being able to write music, that's how talented he was!
