Various ones.
I have arrived at 4pm on a 1st January it was deserted, which was in complete contrast to the two times I arrived in days almost on the 25th July. I like walking in the the winter months but that video gives me a warmth right this at moment because I know what it is like to be in that busy square as people are arriving, it is full of joy, tears and happiness.

I wish I were there!

I have not walked in high season since 2004. The numbers were not this great. Neither were they late March 2014.

Ivar, thanks for post.
