... Azar. It is a converted old house and run by Fauzi's grand daughter. It looks pretty good so far. When I got here I met an American guy and he has been with me all arvo. We went to the top of the hill to a view point. It took a long time to get there but the walk was worth it.

It was then that Brian spotted the dome of the Shrine Basilica only a couple of hundred metres away, so we headed in that direction. It really is a beautiful building, built in the 1960s to replace a series of earlier buildings, and it contains many relics and remains.
