    ... shave was a little more than expected! Found my local Shawarma vendor (75SYP ie 1 quid) just 100m away and which became my steady provider of nourishment.

    Late afternoon I headed up to Jebel Quassion for a view of the city and spent a couple of hours wandering, looking and even a little local dancing!
