    city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
    throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
    never quite know what you’ll find around the next

    Yes, $50 is charged to your credit card, and supposed to be canceled on departure. 3.5weeks later, I'm still fighting for my refund, and staff are very unhelpful.
