Midmorning I was picked up by Yasin and his mother and we drove to a mountain at the urban fringe.

The ascent was quite challenging because of the hot temperature.

But I discovered a tree, I always knew that it must excist somewhere – the tree where plastic grows on.

As usual when there is a cliff around I had to go there for a dare 😉

It was quite a different view over Mecca up there.

After we had seen everything and visited the cave, we went back down.

Yasin dropped me at the hotel and I needed a short rest after this mountain trip. Thank you for this interesting tour!
