After a refreshing sleep we set out to explore the city. Had a rather good breakfast and felt fighting fit, so we jumped on the tram and took off the the old town.

The old town is a heady mixture of locals and colonian architecture, a real hustle bustle with kids coming out from school and political parties campaigning for the vote (elections soon).

We wandered the round the main plaza's and checked out the churches and various building of interest trying not to look too out of place (yeah right). Ended up taking a slow walk back across the town past the observatory and through parks people watching and soaking up the atmosphere.

A good intro to our journey...
