... how old the wall is). Therefore all that is left is a rock wall with a highest point of 1m high. A little disappointing. As I looked at the wall I noticed many tourist standing on it to have their photo take - uh no wonder there is no wall left - tourist decay!

Other than that we would just pick one out of thin air and hope for the best. We went to the next available show at one of the venues and turned out to be a fantastic decision.
