I have been more than impressed with the awesome array of organic foods and natural grocery stores. I swear, every one I go to is better than the last. So far, my favorite is the Central Market. So much awesome produce!
I have been vexed more than once by CapMetro (capital metro), but you just can't beat the prices. $2 for a day pass. Not just a single day, but a 24 hour period of time! So, I can go somewhere in the afternoon one day and the next be able to use the same pass in the morning. I love it! Without the pass, the fee is $1, still not steep. I will definitely have to explore the bus system more.
Surviving Without a Car:
I have to admit, it's not easy. Now that I am closer to the city, it's easier for me to get around, most things are within walking distance, or I can take the bus. So, the only thing I dislike about not having a car is that when people want to do things, I have no way of getting there.
