I continue on north up the canyon--after a little while I figure I should clamber up the cliff a ways so I can take some pictures with the cliffs and the oasis below... I fjnd what appears to be the ruins of a stone fort of some sort... not much left of it now...

From up on the cliff I am able to spot a little village on the opposite side of the oasis--so I figure I'll go check it out... In fact, there's a paved road and a bridge heading that way... I pause in the shade of some trees by the river to play a few songs just as a train of school kids on bicycles began speeding past.  Of course, they have to check out this odd phenomenon--and I'm afraid I may have caused a few of them to get late for class...

El Gara is a nice, quiet secluded village with, of course its little castle--though not quite as subterranean as the others I've seen... Beyond it there's a dirt road that beckons me up another dry canyon...

But no, I've got a mission to fulfill, and I mustn't be distracted, so I climb up the hillside, take my video clip and head back towards the main highway... as ladies washing their clothes in a canal eye me with curiosity...
