Went on our own tour of the city. Walked along the river and through the primary shopping street. A very quaint city with active musicians in the street as well as a variety of stores and restaurants. Ended by visiting the Cathedral.

We took the 1:30 bus to the Cathedral and got off. We were supposed to be picked up at 3:05. The bus never showed up. We had to walk back to town.
