Rob really wanted to come's quite a place and unbelievably atmospheric, spooky even - especially when we were virtually alone, clattering along all those icy cold stone paths below ground...

Atmospheric garrison room...

Very, very streange moment for me.
You may wonder what I was thinking about in this pic as I gazed across Syria from that window. I am not really prone to deja vu or anything remotely 'other wordly', in fact i am a staunch sceptic with regard to after life stuff and don't believe that there is anything beyond life except of course death. However, I definately had a very strange experience in this room that I couldn't really explain. I had a memory.. a very clear and real memory of the place! Very weird. It has never happened to me before and i have been around a bit... usually with you know who. Maybe it was the heat...
