... them all in!
We love our hotel, in the centre of town, fortunately across the road from the famous reading markets. Food is fantastic (back on 5-2 when we return!)
In the afternoon we walked a few blocks to see the old part of town and the Liberyt Bell. This city has many historic sites, but some of the poverty on the streets is confronting!

Not particularly because we were interested in the port… more so because you get to explore two historical ships!
