... stop was the same direction as he was going we kept on chatting all down the poor end of town. It was interesting. The main road in the city has no bars and is also the poor peoples place. So the rice people disown that and say that their part of town is the town centre when it actually isn't. This guy pointed out another park while walking and said I should go there.
