Had organized everything so it was easy to pack this morning.
Picked up by Evelyn with a taxi and went to the bus terminal. Price was up two dollars. Still not horrible, but unexpected. At least the bus ride was uneventful.
We arrived, and went to the hostel that we were originally going to stay at last time. Took me a moment to figure out where it was but we made it there with little hassle and got a dormitory room. We then had ...

The bill is on it's way :-) That done we spent about 10 minutes exploring the old cathedral, opposite the new cathedral and now a museum ($2) and then headed back to the hostel for a bit.
