It is interesting how the residential and commercial parts of the city are separated by the water. Looks like a very pretty place for the royal family to visit in the sumer.

That's a big river - I look forward to seeing more of this city. Thanks for the Christmas wishes - a Merry Christmas to you if you celebrate it!

Nice photos. It is interesting how they divided the commercial area from the residential area. I wonder if it was because of the royal family living there?

Have a very Merry Christmas. See you in the New Year! May you and your loved ones have peace, health and prosperity.
