solar years (equivalent to 309 lunar years). Unlike the Christian story, the Islamic version includes mention of a dog who accompanied the youths into the cave, and was also asleep, but when people passed by the cave it looked as if the dog was just keeping watch at the entrance, making them afraid of seeing what is in the cave once they saw the dog. (see Islamic interpretation). In Islam, these youths are referred to as "The People of the Cave".
From the cave we had a view of Selcuk Castle
Not only was the cave amazing to see, our surroundings were breath taking!!!
Happy kids experiencing the world!
*** You know you are an expat kid when- after returning back to Saudi we heard Owen and his friends playing "Seven Sleepers" a few weeks later!!! The things they are able to pretend play is amazing and it is so fun to listen to them and their friends and see what each person adds to the fun and we like to guess where the other child's recent travels have been!!!
