Joe's World Backpacking Trip Stories and pics from my travels.

Petra, Jordan

JORDAN | Monday, 3 November 2008 | Views [766] | Comments [1]

Me and my Aussie friends, Dave, Kyle, and Britt hitched/rode a taxi from Wadi Rum to Petra.  Petra was beyond description.  As much as visiting the site itself, just as rewarding was sitting in a Sheesha bar talking for hours with a Bedouin and Palistinian.  The farther north I travel in the middle east, the warmer and more welcoming the people become.  So far, Amman is the best in terms of interacting with the people, and Jordanians love Americans.  Not much more to write about Petra, the pics will say a lot more.
