|Looking East on our block|
One concern Carlos and I had were the cars and commercial vehicles speeding down our street both during the day and late at night. At the end of our block we saw children playing soccer in the street and there seemed to be some near accidents. So we voiced our concerns to A, our realtor and friend and asked what did we need to do to get a TOPES (speedbump) added to our street. He talked to the neighbors who appreciated our concern and they told A that they had applied for one several months ago and were waiting for the results of their request.
We spent time at the Internet cafe and found it to be a gathering place for some of the neighborhood youngsters as they could play Wii and Game Cube games for just a few peso's an hour... everyone would greet us with a good day or good night and we were feeling right at home!
