  4. A fascinating set of pics. Question: do you have many street cafés? One of my loves of New Zealand is the fact that one can have coffee sitting in the street watching the world go by. Boras looks like a place where that could be a very enjoyable pastime.

  5. GB - Yes, nowadays any café or restaurant which can find the slightest possibility also offers the possibility to sit outdoors in the summer months. (Some cafés even do it in the winter now, offering extra blankets to wrap yourself in... I think that came with the general non-smoking policy indoors.) This place along the water was created a few years ago, it is lined with street cafés in the summer and has become very popular.
