Thursday Doors in Embu Again

Another set of doors, gates and doorways from the charming city (St Paul’s Cathedral is just a kilometre away from where I live) of Embu.

First up, Archimedes Elite Bookshop, “The scholars’ ultimate destination”, with its mauve doors.

Then there’s the Clever Home. I am not sure what it means, but the colour scheme is excellent.

I like the colour scheme of this shop, too. Favour or Flavour? With a blue picket fence around the al fresco dining area/bench.

This picture is obviously not from the UK, despite the sign on the inside of the yellow door beside the little boy in pink trousers.

Finally, here are twin doors to a VIP latrine – ventilated improved pit. The colour of the doors is British Racing Green – how fast can you get to the toilet? Can you see the candelabra tree just behind the ventilation pipe? It’s a giant euphorbia. If you cut a bit off, it oozes an unpleasant, milky latex. In Africa, it is used to poison fish.
