Walking around the smaller streets of the city center is really interesting. It's amazing all of the architectural history that can be squished in just a few yards of building! In this photo, you can see some remains of an ancient stone building or wall abutting some stucco, which then is next to a modern strip of sheet metal. The green motorcycle was probably the only one not buzzing around the city on this particular night - watch out.
