Walking along one of the shopping streets, I came across these cement pillars, with painted cement fruit on the top. They were brightly coloured, and I thought they looked awful, although I believe they were meant to beautify the concret pillars!
If you see people smiling at you, don't think there's something wrong. Tey're just being friendly and even more likely trying to contact you. I made a lots of new friends that way :)
And when you see a slob somewher sitting/standing near sights you were about to see then ask them about its history. it's almost guaranteed they can answer in English and tell you some cool stuff about it.
