Jordan

Location: Petra, Wadi Rum & Aqaba, Jordan

These are photos taken during 2 days walking in Petra. The Treasury is the large temple that Mike and I are standing in front of, look how small we are. Can you believe that these were sculpted out of the rock. Also, check out the colours in the rock. Pictures from our night in the desert (next day!) at Wadi Rum and the chaos at the port in Aqaba Jordan.

Wadi Rum. The day after camping. The night before we were in a sand storm and Jo was a bit sick. We think it was from the crazy Bedouin man's crazy desert 4wding.

Chaos at the Port in Aqaba. These people have off loaded their belongings from the boat, then unloaded them to go through customs and then reloaded. Some time before this, they would have been clambering on top of a large cage, piled high with bags, bikes and tvs, to find their luggage!
