there's snow on the mountains!

In an earlier post I wrote about how the view from our windows here is amazing - well this morning we woke up to snow on the mountains which makes it even more beautiful. I can't wait to see what it's like with snow everywhere and the sun shining. This photo doesn't really do it justice - it's cloudy and grey, but it gives you an idea of what it looks like. You can also see the thick black cable which is our new telephone line put in last week to finally connect us to the internet. It has been put installed in a pretty dodgy way - it hangs down really low before it gets to the telegraph pole and the first night after they installed it the cable slipped down a bit more making the whole house shake!

This is a bad attempt at taking a panoramic picture from our windows! The wall doesn't really bend at that point! As you can see this was on a sunny day and before the installation of the phone line! The ruins on the right are of a mosque.
