Again, not near any bus terminal or signpost of any kind, and certainly not near the "convenient" shuttle bus that the tour books promised would be ready and waiting to whisk us away! Does it really need to be so hard? We wandered around enough and asked around enough that we finally did find a shuttle, but not the ...
