    Beautiful pics but yikes, it looks like it would really get hot and not a lot of shade. Prostitute street sounds interesting. Not what you would expect there or at least I think.

      Thanks Cheryl. The heat wasn’t so bad in early February, but I think it is worse at other times. Prostitute street and the “instructional” carvings are examples of things we wouldn’t have known to look for without the guide. Yes, his explanations got a bit long at times, but I’m glad we had a guide in this instance.
