2nd to Last Day :)

So here's some pics from our 2nd to last day.... we went to the boarder of the country and got to look at the neighboring country. It was really cool and the water was beautiful! Here's a goofy pic of us...
Here's our friends that we stayed / hung out with :)
We went to this cool old house. It's really old. It was amazing how they did things in order to keep things cool (pre-AC & fans) :)
The pic below is a wind tower. These were used to cool the house. The wind would come in the tower....
You can see it in the pic below, but when the wind came in, it was forced down and through the house - it was amzing how cool it kept the house!
We found this weird little thing (below) and had no clue what it was for - but it was really funny!
This pic is of a really crazy looking shop...we're not sure what they sell, but it looks really cool...
We went to this really old fort. As we were walking around, we saw these bees (?) inside a hole.... they look really different... not sure if they're hornets, bees, wasps, or what.... but they were pretty crazy!
We went to a pottery place. This country is famous for their pottery. This man below was showing us how it was made... it was cool.
One last random pic.... This is from the fort... I thought it was cool looking :)

That picture of Adam is hilarious - it needs to be a profile picture on facebook or myspace! I love the old house pictures, and your description of it. It really is amazing how they knew to keep things cool back then.

I like how there's a random white kid doing pottery in the middle east. or was he with you?

Those bees kind of freak me out. I'm going to try to forget I saw that picture. :)
