Heading towards the quiet 'Flashpacker' end of town. The riff raff firmly behind us:)

Priorities sorted then. A quick massage(of your aching back, what else), and some local booze and food

Great contrast between the powerful mountains in the background (yesterday's too) and amazing wildlife and village in the foreground. Very good! A hug friend Grouser. Adela

The more "colourful" end of town Grouser, just wondering if the Mass Age shop is their equivalent to our Age Concern :-)

@Curly: From the feedback I got it's more a case of go in feeling fine and come out with a back problem. So no relief there then:)

Great capture of this colourful street scene. Amazing view of the mountain to have in your backyard!

A very interesting street scene. I like the viewpoint you used to get the curve in the town's street.

I like the atmosphere of the street in context with those rugged mountain peaks. "Wonderful Tours" is a nice sign to catch the viewer's eye for a moment, too.
