It’s Xmas eve and the street stalls sprawled into the road itself adding to the chaos. Selling cheap Chinese imports – and apples from USA; a treat

Shoe polisher. Everyone’s trying to make a living
Inside the cathedral – pretty stunning it was
Inside the huge market was full of cheap clothing. It’s not uncommon to see clothes modelled showing the rear view.
Another dress up this time with music and in the back streets
A pretty laundry
Someone’s got a green thumb
This street (might be Ruben Dario) is unnaturally empty
Another one of many churches and cathedrals
