These photos were taken on Thursday, 17 September 2015 by Tim & Susan Goodhind, along with British Goodhind cousin Valerie Wright & her amazing husband David (our co-tour guide & congenial chauffeur), without whom the visit would not have been possible. Thank you both, Val & David, for sharing your time, your vast local knowledge, your boundless hospitality and your incredible good humor with us! We are forever in your debt.
