... local guide to take us through the miracle square. We thought T had finished with us but she followed us around through the tour like a poodle and often interrupted our tour guide about something not related to the tour.

We were overwhelmed as the jewelry is all that glitters and glows and is either way too expensive for us or tacky! It's really quite offensive to see it all in one place and I don't think we'll be back here.
On our way back to the hotel we came across a little place off the beaten track for dinner so we stopped ...
