“The city’s most valuable resource is the river that runs through it, with its extensive open embankments. Amidst all the bustle, you can allow time to run its natural course. Between drought and flood, it is a place of tranquillity and infinite nostalgia. River crafts from distant places sail by and let us know that we haven’t been forgotten by the rest of the world.
