... we had too bend double yo get into them. They were very similar to the burial cave that we have visited in both Greece and Turkey, with tombs cut into the rock. Some had large arches carved into the walls with shelves below them, and some had niches where votive would have been placed.

When we got back we could hear several of the toads all making a loud noise, it sounded as if they were competing with each other. We thought they would keep us awake all ...
