    You had my interest until, "full of tourists". The last place I want to go is someplace full of tourists. Is there an off season when the tourists stay away?
    My friend lived in 5R early 1980s. Shoe got a guinea worm!

    "She". My typing can always improve :)
    She has a photo at the market with the "worm winder" and reports that extracting the adult work requires skill and practice. Thanks to Jimmy Carter's group, the skill is no longer in demand.
