Time for another Photo Roundup. I love gathering photos and sometimes they just don't go with a whole blog post so you get little bits and pieces of life as I see it.
Even the police use internet cafes. These three police officers as well as another one who isn't visible in this picture, are busily typing away on the computers in one of the tiendas we have that serves a multitude of purposes. There are a few computers to rent for 50 cents an hour, they sell minutes for phones, make copies, and have "Cabinas." Cabinas are little phone booth things where you tell them where you want to call (local or long distance) and they charge you by the minute depending on where. I think they may have a beverage cooler ("cooler" is what it's called when they keep a beverage around 50 or 60 degrees). Ah yes, one of the ads is for "Red" juice. I think that's a high caffeine drink. They also have someone who sells Avon here. Oh, and there are the gum machines out front. All of that is in a space the width you see in the photo and it only goes back another 5 or 6 feet from the wall you see to the right of that last police officer. They are very good at squeezing in value for your dollar.
