I was driving around my old neighborhood in Ghafiyah today. This is an older neighborhood filled with a lot of run-down homes built together all helter-skelter and dirt roads that ride like a roller coaster because of the ruts and bumps.
I did noticed some new things in my old neighborhood. The middle school for girls looks like they are planting date trees and paving the outside perimeter of the school with a brick parking lot. Some older homes also have new coats of paint and trees and bushes are being planted. So there is a lot of remodeling that seems to be going on.
I was delighted to see one home painted with such a refreshing scene that I had to share it here. The artist used the outside wall of the courtyard as a canvas so that anyone passing by will get to enjoy the picture too.
I thought that it was really neat that someone would do this as a form of advertising for themselves and also to brighten up a little bit of Ghafiyah.
