That last shot is excellent. You lead us down the path, you entice us with the mystery of what awaits inside.

Esse lugar é maravilhoso, a ultima foto tem uma perspectiva super interessante!
Suas fotos sempre perfeitas, nessa ultima eu consigo imaginar se tocasse com meus pés, a textura do chão de pequenas pedras...

Archaeology doesn't always appeal to me but these are beautiful.

Oh wow, I would love to tour this place. That last photo is stunning. I really want to walk that path.

I've always been fascinated by archaeology and these photos really pique my interest. Why, do you suppose, are photo forbidden inside? Even without flash?

We are lucky that they aren't forbidden outside. Great open air section, sculptures and decorations are amazing. Love the perspective of the last shot.

Jenn said...

Thanks for the outside. Even that is a lot.
(But I still want to go in!)

Beautiful! Feel welcome to visit the corresponding museum in Paris, where you are allowed to take photos also inside! :-)
