As residents apartments cool down
from the day’s heat and humidity, they hop on their scooters from work
or restaurants and travel -- much like birds migrating to some distant ancestral
home -- to specific locations on the streets where they meet up with friends
and family for curbside socializing. The streets -- with the scooters, the
horns, and the smells of the street vendors making food –- are alive
with a vibrancy that will energize even the most tired observer.
