my memory of it from a visit in 1988 was that crime made it a menacing place. I seem to recall there was a murder outside our hotel our first nite.

but I still have one glorious memory: placing a banana on Carmen Miranda's grave.

& yes I still have that Carmen t-shirt & an album of hers purchased at her museum.  also a souvenir plate from Sugar Loaf & watermelon sheets.
