Other than getting started later than announced, the tour was fun and quite exciting with the traffic whizzing by on all sides by the zillions of motorcycles that predominate in the city. To give the pedaler's legs a rest we walked up the long arched bridge, had stops at a picturesque cathedral, made an interesting stop n a shop of silk embroidery, then ended at the big market. I got turned around in the maze of alleys but an observant person got me and the coordinator back together just as I had arranged for a taxi back t the pier.
