... hop off' bus tour. What an amazing Insight into a history which is so much older than Australia but has architecture which is so much more than our cave paintings!

The depictions are so realistic that they were apparently used to teach the new king different war tactics and, in modern day, they've been used by historians to determine the types ...

... bike ride everywhere. I met some really good and friendly people and I know that when I come back - not if I have some friends there already. The last few days were just me hanging around the city, going out with those from the hostel and catching up on some sleep.
