That is my wife, Bellibuttonahd, by the boat with me. The pond is safe to swim in since we had the crocodiles removed so feel free to jump in and float around. The dressing room is in the building to your left.

This is my cousin, Uruk, who likes to imbibe a little. He would be glad to share a drink with you. He is smiling at the stone carving of Babylonian soldiers swimming across the Euphrates using inflated animalskins to stay afloat. They actually practised in our pond.

Uruk is facinated by the Hanging Gardens of Babylon and has collected several images of them which he would be pleased to show you. Just hit the button below.
