In this kind of environment I spend the last month.
Even though the houses in different streets in Merrick were very different, there was some similarities. Two cars, two dogs, (two kids?), American flag and a basketball hoop on the yard. In stead of own pools in the backyards people go to Meca community pool, where all the kids can go wild together, while the adults can sip hard ice tea and gossip. Viva la suburbia! Next up: The city and The Webster!
