... out to be a very busy and loud city street but it was fitting since we knew this was our city experience. Voices, music, cars and horns honking 24/7 was like the perfect soundtrack for a city scene. Oh and let's not forget the garbage truck at 5:00AM when it seems like we were just falling asleep!
