April 2 - Hello Petra

JORDAN | Sunday, 3 April 2011 | Views [486]

For the next month or so Petra will be my home base while I help a friend at his travel agency.  Seven years ago in the month of April was the first time I came to Jordan and I never thought then I would be back several times.  Today was my first day at the office getting situated so much much to say there.

Last week I was in Bangkok and the weather there was very strange with cooler than normal temps and a heavy cloud cover.  It looked like it would rain at any minute but never did.  Looks like all the rain went south to the beaches.

I had a wonderful reunion with past coworkers from Jeddah now teaching in Bangkok.  Attending the school was a real treat and many thanks goes out to my host Cheryl.  The last night we took a nice long walk around her area, had a foot massage - now that is something I could get use to on a weekly basis - and ate out. 

The last two days on was on my own walking around by the hostel and came across the Central Department store.  The department store has 7 floors of goods and each floor had lots of nice eye candy.  I could have spent a whole day there but I was on a mission to find puzzles and games for the family I am staying with in Petra.  I am happy to report the logic puzzles are a big hit with the family.  Every one from the youngest to the mom and dad love trying to solve the puzzles.

Time to end my first night.  Please come to Petra is you have the time.
