... it to be very hot I'm excited to see who many people turn up. During the week it was a little empty. We pulled up at the camp ground, woah, this placed is packed to the rafters. Holy cow!

It is actually excavated into the hill with a portion of the field held up by the columns in the halls below. Along the perimeter of the exhibition area there are clay benches, all inlaid with the trademark tile-shard mosaics. At the furthest extremities of the platform you will be treated to ...
