... the bad news. The place is an absolute tourist trap, very crowded and filled with touristy restaurants and other non-authentic bars, souvenir shops and people spruiking tours of various sorts. After wandering up and down the waterfront for a bit, we decided to take the gondola ride up to the bridge. It's a really good way to view the place, and saves an awful lot of energy.

All the Canadians were speaking proudly of Ryder Hejesdal winning a tour stage two days ago! So he'll yeh we want to go! Forgot to say, we are being shuttled about in a Cycling Team Tour bus now...
