I fell in love with this colorful little neighborhood in Balat ❤️ it was the most at home I felt on my entire trip. There were kids playing and running through the streets, and cute little cafes on every corner. The locals were so sweet and inviting, I didn’t mind when they stopped to ask for pictures or touch my hair 😂 they don’t see too many little brown girls walking around who look like me. The streets are so steep you literally have to climb to your destination but we hiked all around the neighborhood until our feet literally couldn’t take another step. So worth it!
