    This was perhaps the most difficult town for me to get a mental image and orientation picture from the maps. I was disoriented for a while, so maybe this description will help.

    Picture the town in the shape of a butterfly, with wings spread up and out at the top of an enormous hill. The people mover lets you off in the center, by the head. You can go north to the cathedral. You can go south to the park and city buildings and bus stops, with a great overlook of the lower city. You can wind up down a level of streets, and never realize it. We walked down to the next people mover station, just to explore, but there really is not much to see below the tourist area of the old town.
