Visiting the ruins fulfilled a long-time wish of Pat's. The setting is spectacular and awe-inspiring. We walked up and down countless steps and marveled at the sheer quantity of rock that was moved and used to build the place. It has a definite spiritual quality to it, and the area is spectacularly beautiful. We spent one night in The Sanctuary, which is a nice hotel a few yards away from the entrance to the ruins. Our room rate included our meals and open bar. No wonder we liked the place. It was hysterical to watch the waiters freak out when I told them they had forgotten to serve my main course. The beef tenderloin, when it arrived, was extremely tender and flavorful.
