Jordan Days 7&8: Petra

From our Dead Sea break we travelled to Petra – 30 degrees at Dead Sea down to 3 degrees at Petra!  And from -400 ft to over 3800 ft above.

In all the 9 years James lived in Jordan he never saw such weather in Petra !  We started walking at 7:30 am and walked for 7 hours – up at the Monastery tomb we drank tea with the Bedouin under cover of hailstones and strong winds ! All day it was rain and gales. We walked to the High Place of sacrifice where James recalled Deborah and Stephen went and encountered a Bedouin with a rifle and Stephen acted as protector. 

At one time 30,000 lived in Jordan – it is vast and the views are absolutely stunning.
