Mecca Reviews

This town, although it’s very small, it’s full of spirit. Mecca is home to the diverse people of Latin America, although the majority of the residents are Mexican. This town has the basic necessities to have a sustainable living and safety. From my experience, I really enjoy Mecca, from the park, to the library, but specifically the local stores that sell sweet bread. The only thing I would like to see improvement in is, the cleanliness of the streets, and the water escapes; since when it rains mecca gets flooded due to no paths for the water to go.

Mecca is a small, friendly environment and it is very peaceful. I have lived here my whole life and haven't experienced any severe problems.
My experience living in Mecca is good. There are not too many stores, so the prices are normally high. Besides, there are not too many resources. What I like is that most peolle are Mexucan farmworkers and I can identify with them.
