When it was over we got dropped directly in town at a restaurant that Dimitri recommended. Bingo - our second superb meal here. It was beautifully decorated with treasures from swords to coins to tapestry and everything in-between. We were welcomed by the host and taken to the kitchen to meet mama and see what the menu was. The kitchen was spotless and mama was 70 if not older. The menu was shown to us in huge 60cm round shallow pots over ...
... with all this wonderful cuisine how fussy I am becoming. In my own room I got a whole relaxing yoga routine done and slept like a log.

I definitely walked my 10km for the day and in the direct sun for most of it as there is no shade on the top of a rock so was pretty weary on getting back. However, well worth the effort.
