This is definately a photographers paradise and the photographic opportunities here are endless ,but make sure that your batteries on your camera are charged before you go out and about
DO NOT PUT YOUR BAG DOWN WHILE DOING SOMETHING ELSE
To spend time here is to just enjoy the people...make sure that you always have your camera handy at all times though. Traveling around here also is a breeze .check out the Sin Cafe.
