On our trip to kite board beach we go through a few villages.
Charming houses that sometimes are done up with wallpaper on the outside walls...
...to houses that have their fronts painted in funky colours but as soon as you see the side it is the normal wood. (They used to do this in Norway years ago. They painted the front of their houses but could not afford to pay for the whole house so the sides and back where often left unpainted).
The local petrol station/garage is a real treat where it is not unlikely that you see the guys hang around with ciggies in their mouth re-fuelling their motorbikes. (Done the old fashion way with a funnel and a sieve).
