These rather deadly looking doors have featured in another blog post of mine from last month. They belong to the Botswana Butchery in Auckland, NZ and I just think they are fantastic!
Prompt: Norm 2.0, Thursday Doors, 27 July 2017
Located on Quay St in Auckland, right on the waterfront, I stumbled upon this little gem. Literally. Absolutely exhausted from my red-eye flight and biding time until I could check into my accommodation, I found myself at the quay.
Walking along I tripped over a crack in the pavement, looked up and noted the wicked cool doors on the place.
I read their sign advertising breakfast and knew that was just what I needed.
Taking refuge inside from the cold, fierce wind and stinging rain, I looked around. Pleased with what I saw. Plush chairs fit for kings and queens; inviting warm hues of brown, beige and black; and most importantly, staff with a welcoming smile.
I sat down, ordered an Eggs Benedict with a side of mushrooms and a long macchiato. Impressively, the staff knew what that was straight away. Even more impressively, it was good coffee. Damn good coffee.
Walking across the street in Auckland is fun! Not only does the little green man actually walk (and moon walk at that!) he also counts down how long you’ve got to cross once he starts flashing!
This morning I approached the crossing and noted there were 10 seconds to go. I had this, I thought to myself and broke into a scamper. Halfway across the intersection a Maori man, approaching from the other direction, had done the same thing.
He made a funny little victory cry complete with fist pump, grinned at me and said, “We’re gonna make it hey?!”
Yes, my man. We were…and we did.
Such a simple yet intimate interaction with this stranger made my day! I smiled the whole way down to the pier to catch my ferry.
Then I caught a glimpse of my reflection and stopped. People might think I was up to something!

Rants, humor, sarcasm, and a haiku-like substance? It's hard to know what's going to come out of our minds next.
