About 3000 people live behind the old city wall today, while 21000 live outside the wall.
 All business centras, big instititions and the hospital are also outside the wall. It seems like the photos are taken in October, when the tourists have left the island, while some big birds are still here.
If I was a bird, I would leave it in September, but of course come back next year. ;-)
