... had walked by our table and heard us speaking English, so asked during the show if we were enjoying it, and we gave them the thumbs up.

It's surrounded by very flat, very fertile farmland. What strikes me most is how little we know about this country. Seems like people either live in huge cities or in very isolated, tiny villages.
