Friday of the first week, we did the Red Tour of the Hop On/Hop Off CityTour, which was an excellent recommendation that saved us time, money, and the hassle of parking and driving. We started at the Wharf, where we learned the history of the working wharf and it's current role in maritime economy. Many ships are repaired here at the wharf, and it is a major shipping port, as well as a tourist destination.
This is a job to which I have never aspired.
Leaving the area, we passed the new soccer stadium built for the World Cup 2010. On this site was the previous Greenpointe Market, a large and expansive market that catered to tourists on Sundays. I have visited it many times in the past, and used to obtain some of the most beautiful table cloths and beaded flatware at the location, as well as just enjoy the culture that would be present, such as foods, dancing, and singing.
