Cars park anywhere and everywhere! This truck is parked in the middle of the driveway, behind the row of parked cars in the parking lot of the grocery store. Another common place to park is on the sidewalk. There are even speed bumps on the sidewalk not far from my apartment.

It is so hot here that household water is heated by the sun. Water holding tanks are located on the roofs of buildings. We have a switch in our apartments to turn on the water heater when the outside temperature cools down.

When taking a taxi here, we negotiate a price before getting into the cab. Some drivers may try to increase the price once you have arrived, but don’t give in.
