We've lusted after gyms, coffeeshops, restaurants, a market with other than manchego cheese; things slightly more 'upscale'.
Well the neighborhood she is a changin! And there is a new kid on the block!
There are now 2 gym within 3 blocks of my house, 2 cyber coffee cafes within 3 blocks, there is a Maxi Carne which is a carnicera (butchershop) that actually has refrigerated cases, meat cutters with gloves, hairnets, clean aprons, with prices posted, and a cash register. More veggie vendors are now closeby, a fruiteria is now in the mercado, more fresh fruit n veggie vendors are within just a block or two and now we have a Super Willys.
Yep, a Super Willys, right there on calle 70 por 75y77
It's like a regular small little grocery store. Canned goods, cleaning supplies, deli counter, eggs, bread....
