I was intrigued by the fervent devotion of the locals. We were given a complimentary bundle of incense as we entered ...
... its for our future generations to uncover when they discover new technology which I think is good. What they have excavated so far is still well worth a visit but I can't help but envy those in the future who will see the whole thing.
