... wandering around amongst them and appreciating the beauty and wonder in creating such huge columns.

After walking around in the heat we enjoyed coming back to our hotel swimming pool.

Although who has ever heard of enforcing a swimming cap if you want to swim in the pool.

But we paid the 3 euro per cap and looked so cool.
Later in a nearby shop we found the same caps for 89 cents.

... Today is our last day at this place and today we drove to some really old temples.

And we spent about 4 - 5 hours there I think it was worth it.

Mum said it was the size of a football field. It was pretty big.

There was a sacrificial altar where people kill sheep to get like rain for their crops to grow.

And so to bed!
