I saw lots of advertisements for Language courses. That was something that was of interest to me. But I was only a vacationer with a few days here. This city is so fascinating. The former river beds which are now a maze of roadways intrigued me and also got me lost. But the view from the long steps of the... More

We climbed to the top of the famous staircase at this university. It was a nice climb, and at the top are nice views of the city. You can see Al Pipila at the top of the mountain from here. Lots of people, students and locals alike, come to sit, chat, and snack here on the stairs. Very pretty architecture!
