Plenty a sights to see, from the ruins of old to the more recent palm trees.
Early morning take off, with a huff and a puff and a scoff, we managed to catch the bus, without too much fuss.

A few stops on the way, to pick up many a stray, or possible tourists from the nearby village 😉
We were en route, the roads not so smooth, traffic heavy, especially when nearing the city.

Finally, arriving. One hour, in a minimalistic bus, where knees were hitting your chin, and barely managed to squeeze your derriere into the seat.
Now, finally free, to do as we please!

First stop, archeological digs! If we can only get across the heavy traffic street!
Eventually, reaching the site, reading the map, filling in the gaps and enjoying the views.

“Snap, snap, snap!”
Now I recorded that!
Nice memories to enjoy now and in the coming years.

Each ruin tells a story. What, who, why, when, can you picture from the remaining frame?
History unfolds, as now and for years told.

Midday: The sun burning on the skin, sweat pouring even from my chins!
What to do?
A light lunch, or call it a brunch?
After that, a fully packed afternoon, with fun filled adventure: So into the trenches, we are ready for more, what ever this town has in store!

Much later: the fortress has been thoroughly searched, for whatever secrets in there lurched.
Now, before heading home, or the borrowed accommodations, for this week’s station:
Shopping, shopping, shopping!
And then…
… to crown the day, a healthy can with sweet, sweet ice coffee inside! Oh what an joyous ride!

OK, some more ruins: But, this was supposed to be a history lesson after all 😉 (really?!), but this time, from the outside, and I see a bench there! Finally, respite!

Some horse, without a head (usually it’s the chicken, right?)
