Who needs sleep

A travel blog entry by kathy.turner

A travel blog entry by maroline

... it were awfully morose. It was considered in high esteem to have a child admitted to the monastery, but some were as young as five years old. And they would never leave. They fasted constantly and usually had a life expectancy of around 35 years. Afterwards we went to a Lebanese restaurant and felt extremely fortunate to eat kebabs and drink fresh juices... Mario was adamant about seeing the most recent Spiderman so we indulged in the most ridiculous-sized ...
