It will be a longer day than we have driven the last couple of times, since it is a little over 200 miles from here. Hope everyone has a good day tomorrow (or today depending on when you read this). Probably will not blog tomorrow night, but Tuesday will be in ...

Each village has a religious meeting place and it's own cemetery.

Now it's time to get ready for bed. Bob did the dishes while I wrote this, now we're both finished. Hope you all have a great day tomorrow and I will try to have something more interesting and some pictures tomorrow night.
