Hired a horse and carriage to take us to the walking market, we set up that we pay $40E for the ride, the driver kept showing us sites and I kept telling him to take us to the market. When he finally dropped us off at the market he want $80E, I finally paid him 60 and walked away. We did a bit of shopping and walked back to the ship
