With this in mind, I snapped a few pictures of my parents' neighborhood (where I'm staying now). The sun of the early afternoon is intensely reflected in some of the pictures. This one above is their street. Some of the houses are exposed, having low bearing walls. Homes like these get plenty of sunlight during the day. One of the best features of living in the Caribbean.
McMansion, full of pretentious and gaudy openings and columns. Yuck! You know the type, I'm sure your neighborhood is not exempt of them.
We have reached the end of this tour. How about your neighborhood? What do you like best about it? Would you post pictures?
