... I got used to walking around without being harassed. I feel guilty saying no, but the locals hate them for begging and I kind of get why. Even the illegals are trying to sell something to earn a living. The buskers and street performers add something to the ambiance of the place so I don't mind giving them a coin.

We had so much time on our hands we played "I Spy" and placed bets on what the total number of casualties would be at the end of the night. It's nothing to brag about, but my guess was closest at 38 people and to be completely honest it was probably way more than that but we had lost interest and stopped counting. People were setting off flares all around us, which was so cool to look at and ...
