|Yes that is barbed wire- security first!|
Paul and I had made it our mission of the day to find him somewhere to have a hair cut which I didn’t think would be possible as the majority of haircuts I’ve seen have been taking place on the street- no joke!
It was packed to the rafters! I felt like I was in a 1920’s Movie! As well as men having their hair cut and dyed they were having shaves with cutthroat razors, I was on the edge of my seat! Surprised at the sheer amount of people who wanted a short back and sides on Saturday afternoon I also couldn’t get over the amount of staff Mr. Air Cool had, around 30 barbers – one for each chair, the men who passed the barbers the equipment, the men who swept up the hair, the men who wash the hair, the men who clean the chairs and the man who takes the money.
I’m not sure if this is ordinary practice but for a place as big as my living room I felt it was a bit excessive.
Before I knew it Paul was done and very impressed he was too, especially as it only cost 90 rupees- that’s about £1.10 - for a haircut! If he still had his ridiculous moustache he could have had that trimmed for an additional 20 rupees- about 0.30p! The word bargain just doesn’t cut it! (see what I did?)
