We strolled to the city centre, commonly known as the historic centre in most countries. We were not overly impressed although there were a few beautiful buildings. One thing we did notice is that every street corner smelled of urine and no sooner did we observe this, around the next corner was a guy taking a leak...REALLY??
On the plus side, our hotel is very nice, brand new, in a very nice location and the manager Percy is great (so is the rest of the staff)! He gave us some advice on where and where not to go and even offered to spot us a $20 SOL because we were out of cash and the banks were closed. I will never lose my faith in the good side of people, no matter where you are!!
Whoops, I guess I spoke to soon....Census ended at 5 pm and everything is back to status quo.
