    How to find the objects.

    by Askla Written Dec 9, 2012

    Favorite thing: I have put links to Google Map in my tips to make it easier to find the objects mentioned, when possible to get the right position. The links are marked in italics. Unfortunately Google Map isn't very precise and too often points to other buildings than the wanted one.

    Wait for the sunset

    by Heinisuo Written Jul 21, 2003

    Favorite thing: Because of the warm climate (during the summer time), the best time to do something "creative" is early in the morning or late at night.
    So take it easy in the middle of the day and hit the road after the sunset.

    Siesta

    by Heinisuo Written Jul 21, 2003

    Man having siesta in the middle of the road.

    Favorite thing: It might be d*mn hot in the middle of the day during the summer. That is why local people are having siesta - and yes, some of them actually do go sleeping for a while. Most of the (smaller) stores are closed from about 12:00 to 16:00 or so.

    Siesta is actually a good thing, because you cannot do much of anything in that burning heat. Swimming pool, sea and beach are the best places during that time.

    Salesmen and beggars

    by Heinisuo Written Jul 13, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: As soon as you sit down to a terrace of some cafeteria or restaurant you get many street salesmen selling wathces, sunglasses, jewelry, etc.

    There are also some women begging for money. It might make you sad while watching women carrying their(?) child and begging, put you should really think if they are on such a bad situation or are they just using the child as a means to an end.
