This place is not just the central city but the most industrialized of this country. Lucky to visit this one. Lots of boutiques selling gold and other gem accesories. Its streets are astonishingly clean and safe to roam around.

We had lunch at the restaurant and then shopped a little in the stores near. Excellent food and Service. We had St. Peters Fish and a great salad bar. The Baptismal Grounds were very serene and beautiful.

Hey fitam, We do not have lockers in the showers. Our guests take their bags with them to the River which is only 25 meters away.
