    ... We walked around to find a good dinner spot and found a place called Lizuna, a cute little canteen style restaurant which served delicious homemade food and was by far the cheapest (£9 for 2 main meals and 1.5litre water).

We were rather frustrated by the behaviour of most of the vendors whose mission seemed to be to rip us off for all they could. From here we went to the site of the former ...
