The old-fashioned way

Some things are best done the old-fashioned way, like the spreading of this yellow paint along the sides of a crosswalk near Kalemegdan Park. I showed you this same crosswalk once before, but looking from the other direction.

I loved the 'ketchup and mustard' colors here, and don't you just love how their sleeves echo this combination?

They certainly don't look like the usual street painter uniforms.

You don't see much of this anymore. You are right Bibi.

What a great photo... It tells a story and has the ketchup and mustard colors. Seriously, I love that they painted it "by hand"

I wonder if they ever smear it with their hands or make hand prints for fun?

The colors are incredible! But this looks like the hard way to paint a street stripe!

Re eating at the food court: I always eat at Charley's - chicken cheese "steak" sandwich with French fries...yum!
