Description
Second weirdest explore I've ever had. Ive driven by these metal buildings a few times, admiring all the rust. So I decide to go on my lunch for a visit. I arrive on scene in the 32 degree heat.Proceed to the first barn like building. A couple of dismantled cars is all that catches my eye here. Moving on to the second building, a sign over the door says "Bramalea Lumber". I enter what appears to be the office area with a sales counter and some shelving etc. Moving back into the dimly lit warehouse area I see piles of rubbish and then to my surprise, 3 or 4 mattresses scattered around the dirt floor.Then to my further and complete surprise,the mattresses are occupied with sleeping Arabs, turbans and all. By now I'm standing in the middle of this flop house looking around at about 4 or 5 sleeping punjabs. Remember this is 12 noon and the heat and odor is oppressive in there. One of the men lifts his head and looks at me, I am too freaked out to take their picture and march right out the door thinking I am outnumbered 5 to 1. I head back to my car looking over my shoulder the whole way. There is also a burned out outhouse, looks to be still in use and a path leading down to a stream, probably for bathing. Weird, all afternoon I tried to shake off the weirdness. How can people live like that? What are they going to do in the winter???

Wow, that is weird. BTW, you seemed to be confused about where these guys are from. The Punjab is pretty far from the Arabian peninsula. Not sure in which of those places it's normal to sleep in abandonment though.

I've never encountered hobos, vagrants, homeless, (insert term here). Only the after signs... always been fascinated with this way of life though.

They may have been on a lunch break from the Great Punjab Business Centre, located just north of here.
