... was pretty cool to see - it was housed in a building as cardboard is obviously not waterproof. We then went to the shopping district where stores are now located in shipping containers (i guess more stable during an earthquake and makes a unique little district). We found a lululemon, which now a few Swiss and German girls are addicted to muhahaha, but was closed so we wandered around. We came across an old Starbucks ...

In the warehouse stood a choice of two brightly painted vans - a more fuel efficient van with less gender specific colours or a gas guzzling, environment destroying, but bright flowery pink and purple van. The decision was left to Negar and no surprises we ended up with the flowery one, 1000 dollars out of pocket in future petrol money and approximately 5%25 of the native flora and fauna ...
