A sunburn and two million mosquito bites later, I think I have accomplished what I came here to do. I smiled proudly at my picture of the Tree of Solitude, which looks exactly like any other picture of the tree you'll see if you Google it.
We sat on a bench under one of the less lonely trees, gazing out at the Tree of Solitude. Come to think of it, it's a pretty cruel concept to plant a tree by itself surrounded in the distance by other trees in clusters. Guess a tree doesn't need friends.
Because the midday sun was searing we had the whole place to ourselves, save for a bunch of archaeologists at a worksite nearby excavating stuff.
Got a little too comfortable so for a long time we were reluctant to move from where we were seated.
