We could blame it on the day of the week but more than likely it is the fact that this particular location is more capital, and less tourist attraction. When away from a small portion of downtown shore line, the town is not all that exciting. Swirls of trash on the street reflect the flocks of pigeons circling overhead. Buildings are slabs of cement in less than ideal repair. The occasional palm lets you know that the weather here is warm, windy with a moderate amount of rainfall. The fort on the edge of the city reminds everyone that battles were fought across the area centuries ago.
Some things feel familiar – water storage on the top of buildings, a few wooden doors here and there and a real phone booth. The Library is open on Sundays – most of the stores are not.
And progress on the knitting.
