A very colourful city. Shame about the petty crime and the copious amounts of dog mess in the streets. We stayed on Cerro Alegre (Happy Hill)

One of the pully lifts around the old town to get people up and down the steep hills. Over 100 years old!

It looks amazing! Glad M found a street-sign which captures everything he is and more! :)

no comments possible, every image of your news is fantastic and clever, beautiful photographs, although the seafood is not very enticing for us... we like you comments, and best of all your spirit of enterprise - what next - a ride on the 200 year old tortoise? More love than ever Mum and Dad

by Chip Richardson

Fantastic photos, as always, although photo 2 does look a tad like Balamory!
