    Reported by:

    With my police escort I had arrived at my lodgings on dusk, perched on the edge of a massive escarpment in Wadi Dohan. In the fading light and on the valley floor I could see this fortress like village. Having imagined how it might present under a rising sun, I was up at first light and below me, shepherds and their goats making the only sounds . The sun rose, bathing the escarpment in golden light, it seemed like an eternity before it finally gilded the top of the fortress like village - magic.
