Lots of tours

I'm exhausted so i won't be writing too much tonight but i'll post some pics of what we saw.  I will say that there are TONS of churches here but only a very small amount of Christians (10%) - sad:(  it is a beautiful city and many of the statues etc depict Jesus.

tomorrow we might do a river tour and just walk around on our own.  Taylor has a game at 6pm so we will head that direction around 4...  these past few days we've had the tour people pick us up and then took a taxi home but tomorrow i think we will try the city tram!
