        Although the hotel is older, it has been renovated and updated. Not as nice as it could have been but friendly staff and excellent location make this a good choice.

        ... it lacked a way to run from difficulties within the group, school, or
        city. I have been forced to learn how to cope. A mere few paragraphs cannot begin to describe the past 7 weeks. Everything I have tried to write turns out cliche, which is ironic because it started with a cliche.

So he had more or less 700.000 people dig an enormous grave for him, with several different pits (halls or rooms), big walls, all tiled and decorated beautifully and full with pots, weapons, clothes, animals (food for the animals), guards, servants and his concubines.

It took us a few hours but we finally got to the little village with a temple at the top of the mountain before making our way down the other side.
