there i've seen many places like this
I love the place! The chino comedor across the road has better food, but for about 3 months (Apr-Jun), this spot is filled with water lillies! Great place for a cold Victoria and watch the flowers bloom...
Recall the face of the poorest and the weakest man whom you may have seen, ask yourself if the step you contemplate is going to be of any use to him. Will he gain anything by it? Will it restore him to a control over his own life and destiny?
— Mahatma Gandhi, 1947
