... Part of the ticket price apparently includes a horse ride out of the last section. We were advised against it. Luckily we listened. The horse ride is free but you are expected to tip very well. Mike saw an American family get bullied into paying $21 US dollars to get off the horses. It was a total circus coming out so thank goodness Zuhair took us in early. We were so lucky and all of us appreciated it. It was a fantastic day. After a late dinner we all ...

The price is always having to buy something from their stands, a few extra rocks to improve my luggage weight! We saw the ongoing excavation of a Byzantine church and the mosaics that have been found so far. We even talked to the NZ author of 'I married a Bedouin', who now lives here and has a jewellery stand near ...
