After lots of giddy exploring, we made our way up a few stairs toward the top of the city.
Did I say a few? I meant a couple thousand round-trip.
So worth it! The Monestary was MASSIVE! Look at that view!
No wait! Look at that view!
People still live up here in little camps and huts...and obviously very patriotic:-)
It's possible that we played too long. It became very dark, very quickly. The light from our cellphones saved us from falling to our deaths.
We ran back to our hotel and then, first thing in the morning, we ran back to our playground!
Look! It's a jungle gym!
Hey! How did that donkey get all the way up here?!
Hey! Karren, how did you get up here?!
Oh, I see. Looks pretty dangerous...
After two solid days of hiking, we treated ourselves to some touristy fun...like buying things from Bedouin children...
And hitching a ride with the locals!
