And array of entertainment was available on a central stage, around which thousands of people crowded. Flags of several countries were hung across the square, too -- Alex and Simon were very impressed: "Look, Mom, the Canadian flag!" Throngs of people packed the streets and shops and restaurants, too.

On the agenda tomorrow: San Telmo, or if it rains, the Art Museum.
