... br> the same guy and being South African bred, I tipped him for his troubles and for
looking after the car. All’s well that ends well!



Late afternoon, Maryln and I strolled to the cathedral in
the old quarter and did a little shopping. We took a tourist train to see the
city. As we neared the final stop, the rain came down in torrents and we had to
sit and wait until it died down before hailing a taxi.
