A Fairy-Tale Village

Travelling on a public bus up and down hills and through narrow lanes sounds like fun but after a couple of hours of doing this, I felt nauseous.  It didn't help when the bus stopped at the final destination, a dead town with all the appurtenances of a vibrant town but not a soul in sight.  It could very well be that we were two days to Christmas and the town folks had gone away.  From where the bus stopped, I had to walk 2km out of the town.  It was ominously spooky to walk through a town that had nobody at all.  But after 2km of walking, the sight that greeted me was well worth all the effort.  I had come to see a fairy tale village atop a hill that's only accessible by a footbridge.

This is what it looks like when the sun sets.  Yes I stayed till sunset.
