Watch out for the slippery streets. Watch out also for the meandering dogs who might bite you and the daydreaming tourists who will get in your way. The cobbled web of electrical cables has now been surpassed by the cable-car web hovering over our heads. This doesn’t mean that traffic is getting better – the minibuses are still ever-present. Watch your feet. On your walk, make sure to avoid the dog’s doings and don’t stumble into the street vendor kiosks placed strategically throughout the city. Also avoid the many construction sites and you might just make it to your destination.
