For me, the landmark is the Castle and the Municipal Garden. I know that my apartment is two blocks uphill and one block north of those two places.
After grocery shopping Thursday night, I was not yet hungry - my stomach has adjusted to the eating schedule here and it was only 6pm. There was plenty of daylight left, so I grabbed my bag and headed downhill to see what I could see. As is true of all waterfront towns, there are plenty of views, food carts, pieces of art, and colorful people to entertain a casual pedestrian. I also found that many places were obvious meeting places for young couples. Yes, kids, public displays of affection are no big deal. Your spanish/french/italian/german teacher was not lying to you back in school.
