A drive to Gharian
We got up early and decided to go for a nice long drive. We headed out for Gharian. A hairpin turn road leads up the mountain into Gharian.
Dangerous curves. . . .
Along the roadside are stands that sell pottery that is made locally. We stopped and had a look.
We drove around, wandering on different roads, looking at the views.
We saw what looked like an old Italian church in the distance and decided to have a closer look.
Sure enough on closer inspection it was in fact an old church. It was abandoned and protected by a wall surrounding it.
Next to the church was a school that was from the same period and is still in use.
We had a look around and then went on our way.
It was a nice drive, but it was time to go home and cook dinner. One week of Ramadan is over... three to go.
