Journal Entry:
Attempted to row this morning, but a bridge was closed and by the time I got to the meeting spot my ride had left. Bummer. I did get to go back top sleep though, there's always a silver lining!

Spent the day wandering around the Roman neighborhood (behind the hostel). There are not straight streets, and most aren't wide enough for motorcycles, much less cars. In the evening I paid to take the elevator up the Colom. Even though it's not impressively high the view is very nice, and the impressive bit is that they even have an elevator, the colum of the monument is only about 6 feet wide (which means the elevator can't be much more than 3 feet in diameter). The upsetting part was getting caught in such a confined space with a pipe smoker, I was almost ill.
