I'm speechless... and would certainly be in front of such a moving landscape... it really is like a cathedral for me. A place so old, so full of stories, silence and cry, wind, rain, sun... a place of colors, of smell when it rains... a place that has existed a long time before us and will certainly exist long time after... a wonder.

@zOOm: You're right, Florence, it is an amazing place; you feel that you need to take your shoes off.
