    Mareile, 70 years old was there in April

    It was a dream to sit outside in the warm evenings. Unfortunately, my husband died in her country at the end of the trip, but I have had a lot of help and nice people around me in the time. My husband loved the country, and maybe he wanted to stay right there.
    I only have good memories

    Totally thrilled, it was great for me! I love it warm .
    But those who do not tolerate the warmth so well should not choose the summer months! The great tours to the temples and so on are really exhausting
