We spent two nights here, rooms were large, clean, comfortable and functional. Just reconsider before opening your balcony doors - beware of mosquitos at night!

... wind was very strong in some places, and sometimes sand blew thick over the road, even though it was elevated by more than one meter. The land was mostly flat, and devoid of life.

There are displays of military prowess by youngsters in bright red costumes and camel rides for those who are prepared to brave the fleas. One of the overwhelming moments of the trip comes while we are walking round the top of the battlements and see the West gate towers against a clear blue sky with snowy peaks hovering between them - we try ...
