We didn't really have a set plan after that, so we started aimlessly walking around the city simply discovering what ever was brought into our path. It's easy to lose yourself in this city, with so many small side streets and bustling people everywhere, but it's a city that you want to lose yourself in. Side streets with small shops and local businesses tell such greater stories than those with only chains and everything typical the world has to offer.
Eventually, we ended up making our way to the famous Rainbow Bridge. A double-decker bridge that sets high above an ocean inlet. For pedestrains, there's a small elevator that takes you to the top of the bridge where you can walk on the side and look out into the ocean and the city in the distance.
