My Sari-sari Store Story

I was sitting alone on one of the benches near the neighborhood sari-sari store.

Quietly, he sat beside me.

It was mid noon and he was reeking with sweat.

I asked him if I could take pictures of him.

He said yes.

 

He has very dark skin, probably because he walks the streets in the middle of the day.

He carries with him a bell that he tolls to draw the neighborhood kids.

After a while he bid goodbye, lumbering with him a huge styrofoam box.

On the side of his box, i could make out two words; LITO A.

It was his name.

He is an ice cream vendor……
