Right now, we are staying in a house in a tiny town looking out on the ocean, our house is a 15 minute walk to the ocean and a 5 minute walk into town. Staying here, going to bars for dinner because they are the only restaurants in the town has been interesting, what I have seen that if it is a good bar then the bartender or the owner will know everyone even kids. The bars have nice tables and booths, and the first time I ordered a soda, I said, "what drinks do you have?" the waiter answered "alcoholic?". I think it is interesting to see the difference between the bars in the US and the bars in Europe, the kids can go to bars and watch TV there, its crazy. I am betting that the bigger cities have modern bars, but the smaller towns still have little bars where the setting is totally different.
