A visit to any new place is always exciting. Last year, we decided to visit Spain and after making our flight bookings, I suddenly realized that I had miscalculated my date of departure. This meant that we either cancel (at a very heavy cost) or simply stay over another day and enjoy our stay at Almunecar, where we had been staying for past some days. Suddenly my son came up with a suggestion- now that we had an extra day to spare, why not explore some places which were not too far away from the city? The idea was exciting.

I was driving and suddenly, something changed as Mizdahkan appeared in an otherwise open landscape; a small town spread over three prominent low-lying hills in an otherwise flat countryside.
