We call Yago “Count Dracula”. The kid counts everything. So to keep ourselves amused on the ten minute jaunt from home to our parking spot, we count parked cars or traffic signs. Or whatever else grabs his attention. Thanks to Yago and his counting I have opened my eyes to new aspects of the neighbourhood. I decided to do a little counting myself.

- 5 bars
- 3 bakeries
- 2 driving schools
- 2 English language academies

“Zero lottery tickets, ah ah ah.”
