I ventured out of "Swanky-ville" today and headed downtown to see the ruins of a Roman amphitheater. It was quite spectacular. After wandering around a bit, I walked halfway back to the hotel before getting lost in a maze of shops and street vendors. I wish there was a device to record smells. Coffee, spices, leather, pollution _ quite an orchestra or sights and sounds, too. Pictures didn't capture it.
All is well. I've spent the day trying to get my mouth around key Arabic words and phrases: hello, goodbye, please, thank you, etc.
