Saturday morning January 31, 2009 - it is cloudy and a few rain drops we are on the way to the Gold Museum and the place to get chocolate and cheese (Ari´s recommendations) Florida Cafe. Also looking for a bus to go South so will make a stop at the bus depot, a very busy place.
At this time Helmut is re packing his backpack, could not find anything and discovered more strings, snaps and compartments. Suggestion: open the backpack before you use it and try all compartments don´t just pack it!
Dinner time is difficult, many places serve big Lunch and close at 4:00PM.
Our hotel is very close to a large University, just like in the States there is a lot of drinking going on here and many places live of the students.
More about Saturday -went to the Gold Museum (great place).
