We also found our way down to the coast and it was just a relaxing as it was a little creepy. This part of the city was deserted . . . shops were boarded up, graffiti surrounded us, no human interaction . . . it was sad.
We headed back to the "market place" and things picked up quite a bit. There was shopping a' plenty with booths set up consisting of leather bags, sandals, ceramics, olives, spices and interesting food items.
It was a nice stop . . . sunny and bright . . . even it was a big uneventful. Sometimes one needs a day of soaking in a culture and "experiencing" rather than just "seeing".
