Thanks DM I find that I like it better when I live outside the "tourist ghettos" THe locals are more genuine and fewer scams.

Lovely views, Lancelot. Is it as quiet as it looks?

On a separate note, I am intrigued by the railing design. Are the spaces large enough for a child to fall through? (I'm just curious. There are specifications in the litigious U.S. for balconies/railings/fences to prevent a child to either get his head stuck or to fall through.)

Hi Omni!

No, the railing is definatelly not kid proof- as are most balcony railings here. The western concept of safety is not "same same" here

I'm assuming an elevator is available and the stairs jogging is optional.
