... you'll know they are together because they dress alike.

As I sit here typing this--at the hotel bar--a group heads for the street yelling and behaving badly as they exit the hotel. Everyone seems to ignore them--or tries to ignore them. It is hard for me to imaging how anyone could be so uncouth. But, they are.

One final note: the streets are full of street musicians playing for coins tossed in their instrument cases or, in one case, in an ...
