Taxi Guys Need A Place Too!

Firemen have their firehouse.  Policemen have donut shops. Sketchers have libraries, coffee shops, and street corners.  And taxi cab drivers need a place too.  In Quebec it looks like this:

    I know this place !!! And love it. The yellow really stands out against the orange and I would love to spend a day just watching these cab drivers. You tell a nice story as well Larry as well.

    • …I think watching them would have all the excitement that comes from watching paint dry but you’re welcome to come to Quebec and watch.

      Cheers — Larry
