Howdy specv: Upon my first trip to AC, the genuine friendly and open way of the San Pedranos was for me the greatest difference to me between AC and any place else I have visited or lived.
Each time I go back home to my mid-sized town in Maryland, I find the lack of eye contact and friendly greetings from strangers to be the most obvious reminder that I have left the magical world of San Pedro. It is a shame, but true.
