... art and sculptures inside the convent rooms were well worht the visit though we were shepherded by the staff even after we declined a gude. Guess they needed to make sure we only stayed in the museum and didn't go visiting the cloistered nuns who are forbidden from contact with the public.

Where we had some awesome steak, including Alpaca, before heading back to our hostel to meet up with Kris, Chloe and Mads, who had caught ...
