    Spent two days chilling in the Ghidion gardens and never got around to going on the lake. Very naughty! Next time. Great info with class photos. Thanks.

    Such a stunning part of the world that many of us sadly feel unsafe to visit because of the local situation there. Your beautiful photos convey the mystical quality of the places, thanks!
