It’s about 1000 degrees with 1000 percent humidity. This city is so wildly different from anywhere I’ve ever been. It’s a fascinating and a frustrating place. The scamming of tourists is a little too prevalent for my taste, but I have yet to meet a rude or seemingly unfriendly person, even those who have failed to scam me. Everyone I’ve met is quick to smile or lend a hand, which makes being in a foreign place so much nicer. I was walking through a quite but very poor area of the city in my first day. There were stray dogs everywhere and people living in houses made of tin, but I didn’t once feel unsafe. The looks I got were more ones of curiousity, and multiple people were willing to point me in the right direction when I looked like I was lost.
