    Here is a link to an inexpensive tour. We need to pay something for the 1.5 hour tour. How many of you would be interested in this? Here is the link to reserve your spot.

    Of course. We'll be driving a van that will have plenty of room for two to four additional persons. We plan to leave Friday morning and be back Sunday. And, my wife Ayesha and I are good listeners.

    Would anyone like to do the Cemetery tour with a tour guide, or do you want to go by ourselves?
