... has character. 'Downtown' is contained within the length of St. John's harbour, and goes about three streets back. Quite different to any other city I've been to.

Our first stop was a small pharmacy ('drugstore') where we found some more souveniers. Then to 'Second Cup' (a cafe) for a frozen hot chocolate and free wifi (Fliss hadn't had breakfast). Andrew had dropped us downtown on his way to work and Jules planned to pick us up after her work at around ...
