Poppy`s is a small beautiful hotel with a great atmosphere. very silent and a nice garden.
The staff is very friendly and they have a very good restaurant. You have to order one hour before
your dinnertime because they take time for prepare the food.
For me it was a fantastic stay there.

Family members are buried together in the same tomb, and if the family is of high or noble class, then sculptures and pictures will be placed outside the tombs depicting the deceased. Despite being surrounded by the tombs, the place didn’t have the feel of a graveyard. On the way back through the village we stopped to look at some wooden carvings ...
... something out of an Indiana Jones movie. After a good look around we headed back to our bikes. A group of soldiers say us and came over to us looking quite menacing. One came directly up to me and started to pull something out of his pocket and raised his hand up to me to reveal a camera, with a broad smile he asked if he could have a photo with me, somewhat relieved that he wasn't going to shoot me I agreed. I made the peace sign and said make love not war. We got back on our bike ...
