    ok, so i finally got around to watching these. excellent stuff. general impression i suppose is that the city is dominated by (a) dusty, red dirt (b) traffic (c) informal housing (for instance, next to last video) and (d) generic, semi-modernist housing towers. That more or less confirms the impression from satellite photography. The market in video 1 (I think — might be 2) is a nice exception.

    those trees need to be in all our renderings (the ones with the fat bases). very distinctive.

    any idea what we are looking at at 3:10 in the second video (edge of a plateau, apparently, but where? just outside the city? way outside the city?) dude has a killer fanny pack, though.

    so motorbike definitely is the way to get around town.

    i wonder if this was shot by a european… great shots of the barrier islands, though.
