    There are quite a few streets that I could have chosen to talk about, but the most interesting one to describe would be ABC Street. It is somewhere in the centre of my hometown and about fifteen to twenty minutes’ walk from where I live.

    It is hard to say what the main buildings are on this street because the street is essentially a long stretch of shops selling various souvenirs. There are also a handful of restaurants dotted in amongst the shops, most of which are pretty nondescript. However, one building that does stand out. It is the traditional medicine shop, which doubles up as a hospital. It's probably fair to say that this would be the main building on the street, and there are always floods of people going in and out. Apparently because it’s meant to be one of the best places, if not the best, for traditional medicine in the whole province, although I’ve never actually been inside myself.

    Regarding what I usually do on this street, well I guess most of the time I just go there for the street food. There are a load of stalls which do really good food, such as barbecued squid, lamb kebabs, uh… what else… oh yeah, chicken wings and also chicken drumsticks. That's basically what I mainly go there for, and it’s actually making me feel quite hungry just to think of it!

    But getting back to the topic, with regard to how I feel about this street, on the whole I would say it’s a really cool street, because it’s pedestrianized. There’s a lot of space to walk around without having to worry about getting hit by a car! Also, most of the buildings seem to be quite old, which gives the street a nice, traditional feel.

    It can sometimes feel a little touristy, especially on weekends when you’ll see people walking around with cameras dangling around their necks, and I guess because of this, the things sold in the shops there tend to be quite pricey. For example, a pack of postcards will probably set you back about $30 or so, whereas if you went to one of the bookshops in the city it would probably only cost about $10. All in all I would say it’s a really great street, and I feel lucky that we have such a place in our hometown.
