... now. I'm telling you EVERYONE is riding a bike. Parents are picking up their small children and putting them in baskets or they have small seats on the handle bars. It's just their way of life here, no wonder everyone is so in shape. We make it to our room and its great! There's a bedroom, bathroom (or 'water closet' as they call them here), a small kitchen and a living room with another bed. It's pretty awesome and the view from our bedroom window is beautiful.
