  5. The outdoor seating is something…it just needs a table and an umbrella. πŸ™‚

    The falcons were interesting. They’re used for falconry and shows?

  7. Didn’t know indoor furniture could be used as patio/outdoor furniture as well! Guess someone thought they were helping the community with their old stuff πŸ˜€

  9. The outdoor seating looks like a lot of parties/events I attended during my college/law school days!

    As for the falcons, they are so cool – I assume that were ones used for falconry?

  15. Oh my gosh. There used to be a bunch of middle eastern students living in a house that I walked past often. They had made some sort of smoking room in the garage that looked a lot like the furniture in your photo. They’d be sitting out there in all weather with the garage door flung open, and their magic carpet knitting them all together as they told stories and smoked their thingamajigs. πŸ˜‰

      • I am always surprised that people have so much to talk about there. The sofa set photo was wonderful- is it politics that they discuss or their wives or their love lives or their fast cars or the world situation in general ?

          • I mean, perhaps for an introvert, its difficult to comprehend that people can talk for so long about virtually nothing but infact, things of so much importance to them.
            And to add to the surprise, you don’t see women socializing out in the open on these discarded sofas.:)

  20. Interesting pictures. I love the old furniture used as seating on the street. Put an umbrella over it and a fence around it and start a business.

    I honestly now think there’s a great cultural gap in male relationships in the U.S. and the Middle East.. Every man I’ve met or male group I’ve encountered here in the U.S. that was from anywhere in the Middle East, always are engaging in conversation, usually very animated conversation.. But here in the U.S., our guys talk but not usually holding sustained conversation for long periods.. Our culture raised the “big silent type” .. It’s less noticable now than years ago but I have a feeling that the Middle East leads in male bonding and socializing.. What do you think Lynz ?
