I'm happy to report that we did eventually make it to Stockport. Insert the beginning of adventure number two: finding the market. I guess I sort of figured it would be obvious when we got there. Usually there are signs and such for these things. But, it appeared as though this would not be the case. So, we took a chance on some tourist signs that, thankfully, took us to our intended destination (It was the loud 'musical stylings' of a band of 10-year-olds that actually tipped us off).
I have to admit, there were WAY more people there than I'd imagined. It was a small space to begin with, but add in the people, and it made for a bit of a slow dash for food.

|Yeah - you want some of that!|
For those of you who don't know what an 'arepa' is, it's a sort of flatbread made of maize flour.
It's consumed mainly in Columbia and Venezuela. Really tasty!

Anyway, the food sold out fairly quickly, so we decided to walk around and see what Stockport had to offer* at 8:00pm. There was a beautiful cathedral outside of the old market, but other than that, there wasn't much going on. So, we decided to make our way back to the bus station. We both snapped a few photos along the way.

|This sign would have been mighty helpful on the way to the market...|
