... the night market. He was told to come back at 1500.

We went into a handful of museums dedicated to armed escorts, banking establishments and upscale homes. They were all included in the ticket from yesterday. All of these places had exhibits with some English re various rooms, etc. It was again meat and potatoes' touring.

Funnily enough i had snook into the courtyard of a very elegant and in my opinion very romantic hotel to photograph the doors etc and saw a magnificent bat carving.
