A day of grand sights with plenty of surprises.  It appears that I had stumbled upon a secret
treasure trove, and had I been able to stay, chances were that more would have been uncovered.
It was almost like an archaeological dig, where one's heart is pounding at the thought of new
and uncharted territory, but that could come soon enough.  Today, I give to you a priceless
package of precious proportions.
