In the open market is a pond called the Merchant's Harbor. Every hour on the hour, Monday-Thursday, there is a rainstorm, with the showers coming more frequently Fridays-Sundays. I took two movies bits of the rain, each just over a minute. The first one is gentle showers with the thunderstorm better represented on the second selection. Taped commentary is courtesy of various tourists standing around me as I filmed. You can see in the second excerpt, the crowd was pushing around a lot more.
