Shane and I hit the streets in the afternoon. This time we choose to go to Fr. Matthew Square near the old Distillery Building. We choose the area to meet a cross range of people in the area. At first it was quiet. Not many people were passing and even when they did not many people wanted to stop.
Shane came up with the idea to go and get some fruit from the market….both to support the market and also brighten up our table. It worked. People were intrigued by the oranges and it was a nice ice breaker (and it was icy enough) and they were getting one of their 5 a day!
We met a range from local residents who have lived there all their lives to new professionals who have just moved in. Some local businsess people stopped to talk to us and we met some teenagers coming back from school too. Again we got interesting insights that helped to build up an interesting picture of the area.
