  • It seems to be in Venezuela,on the street in the shops and bars you always hear this annoying accent. Careful if you go inmotion these primitives do not respect the traffic lights or the pedestrian strips. If they had clava and put dinosaurs on, it really seems to be in prehistory, to be envied by Indigenous African tribes.

  • It is a fairly lively neighborhood, with many shops and quite close to the center; the houses are expensive, but the walks are free and you can delight in the architecture of the buildings. Mandatory walk
