I have been coming to
The crowd is mostly young, and many are smartly dressed. There are quite a few foreigners and English is spoken often. One gets the impression that many of them are students getting off work, or young professionals getting off work. And they look happy. The buses are crowded but orderly. There are also many brightly-coloured and new-ish taxis.
Walking the streets today, I feel optimistic for
By the way, how do you cross the busy streets, where it seems impossible to predict where and when the traffic is coming and going? I have developed a method - I walk when the pretty young ladies with boyfriends walk, and I stay close to them until I get to the other side. I figure that (1) they are locals and know what they are doing, (2) females tend to be less reckless than males, (3) their boy friends are motivated to keep them alive. Pretty logical, right? So far, it seems to be working too.
