  • No sooner had we arrived a man offered to make us the guided tour, told us a little about the history and he was showing us the photos making more interesting and fruitful travel. Very friendly people. As it has moved little still makes no since running the Simulator, since I imagine it must be very good and hope to return soon to experience.
