Jabal Noor was not as clearly seen as before. Development has hindered the view, quite disappointing.

The whole trip to Mecca and Medina are great. I enjoyed every second of it. 14 days of full contemplation. The dry dessert, wonder how Muhammad survived back then with many people hated him for spreading Islamic values. The trip reminded me of New Zealand. Mountainous areas, the difference is that NZ is cold and snowy, while Mecca is hot and dry. However, the effect these trip had on me is quite the same. We are all nothing in this world:)
