Day 054 : 1 hour, 1.6 kms

With these towns being so close together—and of course I have to stop and play a five song "concert" in each one--I don't think I’m going to get a very high kilometre count per day on this trip, which is quite all right.  I’m getting over a bad cold and am in no mood to try to break any distance records.  My next town is another gem:  a castle perched on a hill with a stunning 270 view: two earthen villages, nicely cut hills with three layers of cliffs, and a vast sea of palm trees where, if you just block out the surrounding hills you feel like you’re in the jungle tropics!  The castle itself is pretty cool too, with tall towers, decorated gateways and round pillars inside made of earth bricks—the first I’ve seen like that I think. 

Yep, this is a region that never ceases to impress…
