    see what happened, was, I just saw it on the map, so I went off looking for it without checking in the guidebook…which I should have done, because even if it hadn’t burnt down, lots of things close in the middle of the day and I arrived at about the time it would have been closed even if it were open.

    better buy a local guide , things are happening too fast here that some guides can’t keep up with the changes..
