... that are reminiscent of Paris, giving neighborhoods a very European appearance. As in many large cities, the residents depend on neighborhood groceries, rather than large supermarkets. While big markets can be found, there is a fruit/vegetable store and a small market on, seemingly, every other block.

Next, we were off to the downtown area for more shopping on the Florida Street. This time it wasn't raining, and I was able to take more time to check out the shops.

Also contributing to this is the fact that drunk driving is fairly prevalent. Some friends of ours even had a drunk cab driver one evening, so worth being a little extra careful with the cabbies.
