No School, No Sales

When I passed by an elementary school, the street was quiet and empty. I looked up at the windows. Ah, classes are ongoing. But why can't I hear the teachers? I looked at the stores in front of the school. They're all closed. Oh, right. It's Saturday. No one buying emergency school supplies, cheap disposable toys, or sweet and salty snacks and desserts.

true, but i'm concerned about all the things they're selling now. there wasn't that much during our time. and some of the stuff are things you can do yourself at home for free. anyway, what would you set up if you lived near a school?
@hereandthere school supplies, printing, snacks, student meal etc.. When I was in college in Manila the sidewalk peanut vendor's daughter wore a uniform like ours. The place where they did typing jobs at 1 peso per page during those times ( there were no computers and printers yet lol) was a millionaire, I know cause the Chinese guy was my late father's friend, anyway that was a big University.

That is sort of the way it is for summer by the college here! There are still summer sessions going on, but not the bulk of the students around like it is the rest of the year (many graduated or probably went home for the summer). There are many restaurants and stores around, but they are not as busy right now - even the streets are less crowded with traffic (which is good for us!).
