There were disbenefits of the rain!
We took a taxi from the Barcelo Hotel to the Glass and Crystal Museum on Saturday morning. Had to abandon the taxi in a traffic jam because of the flooding and spent an hour trying to find our way across. When we arrived, the owner, looking harassed, apologised and told us the Museum would be closed for 2 days because of the floods. Another time.
We walked back as the flood subsided and saw houses, hotels, shops and cars that had been damaged. It wasn't a pretty sight.
What was a pretty sight was seeing the river full of fast-flowing water.
