Got to a downtown port location, thus able to WALK THRU OLD TOWN from 9 to 12:30.
In the Town Center is a huge cathedral, occupying two blocks, at least 15 stories high, filled with filigree and buttressed walls. It was built over 25 years beginning about 1350.

Went on the city tour. Quite interesting. Didn't bother with more sightseeing ...

I ended up with two gay guys - one German, the other from the States - trying to teach me some of the language with hilarious results. I think we stopped laughing at about 2am. There is no better feeling than getting a fit of the giggles until your stomach cramps and you ...
