You can see the stark shadows from the flash, in spite of the daylight coming onto the room from the opposite side (down the hall to the left).
It looks like something out of Gray Matter...

Oooooo. See. I want to see these kinds of things. I'd spend so much time. So many photographs. Just to use for D&D ideas. :)

This is in Sintra!

Theoretically you'd have to pay to see this "in loco", but if you're ever around, ask me and I'll tell you how to get in under the radar! :biggrin:

Reminiscent of some of those abandoned cities or temples in the jungles of Cambodia.

Never through of that... you're right, especially the second one is very similar to photos I've seen of Cambodia! I'd really like to go to Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam, but with my luck, I'd probably get bitten by a poisonous snake, or worse!

There are places that I would like to travel, but some of them are not that safe for westerners, especially Americans. Though I suppose that Cambodia is not exactly the killing fields anymore. As far as natural dangers Australia has to take the cake. Everything is venomous there. :lol:
