The food that afternoon was really good and the people watching was even better so that evening for dinner we actually decided to head straight back to that restaurant to see if Serena was right. We chose probably the best and worst seat we possibly could have, right on the main drag and sure enough within about 30 seconds of us sitting down we saw our first flash go off.

They were grouped around a central courtyard which would be shared by 4 families.
