    ... by their former use as well as their current function.I also saw examples of just how important this country is as a crossroads for international endeavors. Just down the street from the hotel is the City of Knowledge. They state their mission as follows:

No one really "chats" with me, because they assume I live here and have my own family and community just like they do. And, I have already experienced the universal dark person's welcome of being followed around retail stores, as if I have come to steal. But ...
