First we had to hike through this immense canyon of red brown limestone. It was fantastic. Here's Jacquelyn with two of our friends.
Jacquelyn with two ancient Petra warriors.
Jacquelyn looking at the Treasury and camels. There were camels available that you could ride for a fee, and they were always trying to get you to ride rather than walk; but we were having so much fun walking around.
The camels were very interesting and sometimes noisy.
I wanted to put my hat on one camel and take a picture, but the camel didn't like it and started baying at me. Then his owner yelled at him until he let me. So here's my Indian Jones camel with Jacquelyn in the background wondering what I was up too.
On the way back we saw a Byzantine Church that was built later in the canyon after the Edomites of Petra had disappeared. It even had a baptistry for baptisms.
That was the end of our sight seeing, and the end of our trip, except for traveling home. On Day 18 we flew from Amman to New York, went through customs, and got a hotel in the Bronx. On Day 19 we flew to Seattle. Talitha picked us up at the airport and drove us home to Puyallup. It was the trip of a life time for Jacquelyn and me and we'll never forget it.
