... person. After driving around an impressive square in the chaotic traffic, we got out to begin the walking part of the tour. Everything was neat and tidy and people seemed well behaved so I'm not sure why there was a large group of police in riot gear, batons out and riot shields up.

After breakfast, we headed to San Francisco Church and Convent, for a tour of the religious areas and in particular the catacombs. The church and convent had an amazing amount of opulence, with tiles dating from 1620, paintings galore, and gold leaf everywhere. The catacombs gave us our fix of morbidness, with the remains of around 25000 people (estimated) in the catacombs (still, this ...
