So much, in fact, that we've decided to rent an apartment for a month and really get to know the city properly. There's just something really nice about the town: the vibe is mellow, the people are friendly, the food is great, and there are some really cool bars... and we've barely scratched the surface yet. On top of this, it's a great place to use as a base while we explore nearby regions and habitats.
We've found an apartment (it took all of yesterday, but we got there), and it even has a pool which is great.
Now to plan the next few days of adventures... :-)
