Dark alleyways merely a metre wide

It didn’t feel the same as the flowers markets I had previously been through but nether less was still full of colour and action.

Nice article in the New Zealand Herald.

With my afternoon tour starting at 2.30pm / 14:30, decided to walk the several kms back to Hotel Lytton in Sudder Street and recharge both batteries and me.
