Okay, there's nothing wrong with the Manassas Mall. But if you, from Brazil, in Virginia, can't find that magical American lotion to take for your Colombian friend in the Netherlands (who first found out about this lotion in California), have your Floridian hostess drive you to this elegant shopping-center! They have all the famous brands you need, in a really nice setting... and who doesn't love upscale malls??
On the picture, this one taken from the parking lot (!), the serene beauty in American contrasts of the old and the new, a small chapel and the big mirrorred-buildings behind.
The times when I didn't have a chauffeur in Manassas, this mall was what I could reach on foot. I was the only person brave enough to face those 5ºF or -12ºC and walk outdoors, so people would look at me, a dark figure crossing the highway, but I was not embarrassed because all they could see were my eyes... if they tried really hard.
