Calles limpias, lindas y bien cuidadas. Me encanta como mantienen los edificios antiguos. Lo malo, cuidense porque en cierta hora las calles son muy peligrosas. more »Clean, nice and well maintained streets. I love how they maintain old buildings. Badly, take care because at a certain time the streets are very dangerous.
