Local residents are talented and friendly people. These are great musicians, dancers and acrobats. Without a doubt, we can say that every native resident certainly has some talent.

National holidays are worth a separate article. In winter in the city is organized Jazz Festival. The event always attracts many tourists and fans of this musical direction. Early March is the time for a carnival. This is a bright and magical show full of colorful parades and festivities. The reason for the celebration is Independence Day. On this holiday all the central streets and squares are transformed into large fairs. It seems that on this day all residents of the city gather near the festive square in order to enjoy dancing, taste delicious food and communicate with friends. There are more exalted celebrations in this city. For example, the Day of honoring the dead is one of them. It is celebrated annually on November 2.
Many locals people may seem even overly helpful and friendly. Women here can hear numerous compliments and praising. Such attitude is normal here and should not cause any embarrassment. In their turn, local people also expect courteous and polite attitude. You cannot afford any negligence even with strangers - it can severely hurt local people or cause uproar. Despite their love to different kinds of celebrations, local people have rather reserved attitude to alcohol. Appearing drunk in a public place is considered a sign of bad manners and disrespect to others. While making a visit to a house of local people, you should definitely get some modest gifts. Women are usually presented with a bouquet of flowers, and appropriate gifts for men are quality tobacco or good wine. Copyright
