shopping center walk from cheap hotel

In my previous post I groused about being in a hotel on the wrong side of a highway and having to fire up a truck just to go a short distance across the road to shop at Target. I, indeed, did go to Target in the truck. Coming back I discovered that my hotel was not so alone as I thought. I towering Hilton was blocking my view of a nearly mile-long shopping center. I love walking in generic soulless shopping centers. This one filled the bill nicely.

Image #1: Chef Boyardee spotted in Target. I used to love making this brand of boxed pizzas when I was a kid. They came in a little kit and were fun to make. The name used to be "Chef Boy-Ar-Dee" with the dashes. Lately the commercials on TV have been featuring retro film clips of the real (now deceased) man who founded the brand, Ettore Boiardi. For some reason I was always in awe of the man when I was little. He seemed fun and made those good pizzas!

Image #2: typical sight in a soulless shopping center anywhere in America.

Image #3: I still maintain that this shopping center was soulless! I saw several pictures of Jesus on the wall.

Image #4: inexpensive Asian buffets are always busy. You can gorge for just a few dollars. Sometimes some of the entrees remind me of cat food. Same for Subway's subs. I swear it's Little Friskies.

Image #5: workin' it off at the forlorn soulless shopping center.

    Someone on a bike touring email list once told me that if one finds themselves in Southeast Asia and there is something on the menu called beef, demand to see its hooves.
