there were so many people by noon that it was so busy and a little hard to move around.

some of the cafes that people just sit outside with beer and/or coffee. just hanging around chatting and people watching and oh, enjoying the great weather too!

i must say gene took much better photos and they're all downloaded to his pc, i'll try to get some and post them here. more photos coming.
