Last week, I was walking down Calle Comercial (Market Street) on a normal afternoon. Halfway through the market, I see a rat run across the road just 30 feet in front of me. People start hooting and hollering, and laughing. Rather than finding it absolutely disgusting, people were very mild mannered with this encounter. I couldn’t help but smile as I continued my way down the street while wondering how the reaction might be back home in a similar situation. I can guarantee it wouldn’t be remotely similar!
