    ... down with a cold/sinus thing and my vertigo didn't enjoy the winding roads.

    ... after it’s been magnified countless times. There were a lot of flowers including alpine gentians, violets, miniature sweet peas, small polyanthus. And of course to the tomb itself – fantastic to see something only ever seen on TV before, in its own environment, no big security measures……if only it could talk!
