Like in many of the cities we've visited, we quickly grew tired of the pushy street vendors hocking their wares (especially wide-brimmed hats for hiding from the sun), but were pleasantly surprised to find a clean, colourful and overall attractive city. Although we stayed in a hostel in the touristy area around Calle Media Luna (half-moon street), we spent most of our time exploring inside the old city walls.
It's hard to believe, but after eleven months of traveling our adventures in Central and South America are now at an end! Sure, it'll be nice to get back to Canada, catch up with family and friends, overdose on Timmyho's extra-large double-doubles (or have they up-sized them again already?), and move on to the next stage of our adventurous lives, but I'm sure it won't be long before we're both searching for excuses (and money) to head back down. Whitehorse here we come (via Panama, Los Angeles, and Vancouver...). Catch you all on the flip-side!
