... on the street, they're a little more persistent but usually move on after a second "no thanks", or when they get distracted by something else. No one is particularly pushy and you don't feel harassed.
Poverty isn't as overt here as much as it is in the country. The first glass tower block we have seen for a while stands watch over the city. New cars are mixed in amongst the motorbikes and tuk tuks. Coffee shops (including Costa) are numerous, and there are ...
