Went to Southall on Sunday just gone and happened across this mini-bus in a side street. Just had to take a pic. Thought it was an Indian-style at first (which it is I suppose) but later found out that it’s actually Pakistani – and is a common sight on the streets of Lahore as well as cities in much of North West India for sure.

It belongs to a Southall-based catering company. Very strange seeing this in a West London side-street. Made me smile. The blaze of colour and intricate detail. Would make anyone smile wouldn’t it? There’s something really happy (or hippy) about it.
