With the numerous panaderias, papelerias, heladerías, and tiendas, I have always wondered how these tiny shops are able to survive with its competitions. People eat bread and ice cream all the time and would probably need papers for various reasons. Some of these tiendas are not even walk-in tiendas, they have enclosed gates where one has to order what they desire. In a city like this, these vendors are able to survive and provide support for their family. Perhaps trying your best is what matters the most.
