Not many women were in sight, and the place was full of men in their bikes, hanging out, talking loudly and gambling with some sort of local games on tables. Pepe later told me, I was crazy to even go there! Well I didn't know any better, nobody warned me!

I ended up taking a horse cart ride, mainly because I've had enough of the relentless summer heat. I ...
