Just prior to this point we had walked around the end of the airport and then back into a light forested area. When we reached the monument at the top of the hill ...

... on in the cities each night, even though it is a week night and most have to get up and work the next morning. There were several bands throughout the city and we were able to stop and listen to a group.
