Read about eating carrots and strawberries
Do you take care of yourself? Do you carrot yourself? :-) Do you think what would make me look fresher?! Coming from a tropical country, the Latin “bronze” look has always been in fashion.

I could add many others adjectives to this place. Like also: exclusive and posh (to some hidden addresses), gentrified (it’s done, get over it!) and hipster (Uhh, the most used word to identified “desperate to look cool” people).
I still prefer the first ones. Here are some images of the early evenings:
