... We ended up in a poorer area where ordinary folk obviously buy their food and other goods. We were looking for the dance performances we'd heard would happen later in the day. Finally we walked back to the square and then found a tourist information office and found out the performance was to start at 3pm down near the lake where we'd caught the boat in the morning. We took a taxi down, found a spot on a wide thoroughfare that was becoming lined ...
