Architectural beauty at Patraj Roti Shop

Copyright © 2009 Richard Bolai

Patraj Roti Shop at Tragarete Road, Woodbrook, Trinidad, West Indies

This is the shell of the once popular Patraj Roti Shop which in 2008 was destroyed by fire. The archway led you a row of tables and just left of it there was the casher and a queue of people who would wait forty five minutes to be served. In some way it is a reminder that you can’t hold on to things, and that experiences are to be enjoyed in the present no matter its circumstances. Everyting, slight, wet and plenty chicken

Slight - The degree of pepper to be added to the roti
Wet - The amount of curry to be added to the wrap
