Awesome huge room which resembles something we would see in Old Montreal or in France if it were smaller. It seems that the stone walls are over a meter thick, like some old fortress.

... clay pots and festooned with red geraniums. There is even a fish pond in the square. The artefacts in the rooms are genuine, as left by the nuns. Many are valuable antiques and would have been given to the nuns by their families. A show of wealth. The families of the nuns would have had to pay a 'rental' on their rooms, the more paid the better the room. Nothing changes! When we finished the tour we were invited to a violin recital.

Apparently one of their dresses with all the embroidery costs about $300. The trek was done over two days with an overnight stay in the oasis at the bottom of the canyon. We could see the oasis as we set out and it did look great with pools and lots of greenery agains the canyon walls. So ...
... boasts a very European feel with coloured buildings, courtyards and bars/cafés along the main strips. We made our way to a restaurant for a late breakfast and then wondered around the city looking at all the various cathedrals and historical museums before I disappeared back to the hotel for a rest after a hectic few days. We made our way out for dinner to a rooftop terrace restaurant over looking ...
