... that the locals make use of the 'caves' all over the place. The picture is one of them but note the 'chimneys' in the slope which are ventilation shafts for the cave. It must be huge.

... that looked nice for a well deserved dinner. The restaurant setting consisted of comfy bean bags and small low tables. A wellcome change from the hard quad bike seats we had been sitting on all day. While viewing the menu we noticed that this place also had shishas. With Sarahs flu almost subsided and comfortable seating acquired this seemed like the perfect time to indulge in the local custom.
