Little Petra and mystery food.



Little Petra is, well, little. It is also beautiful, quiet, and a nice way to spend a couple hours relaxing after four days on the ancient stairmaster that is Petra. I have enjoyed my stay here with the gregarious Ma'moud at the Sharah Mountains Hotel. I might have been able to stay cheaper; I definitely could have paid more; but I am glad I landed here.

I have just had delivered to me a plate of something delicious wrapped in grape leaves. Ma'moud has given me free Turkish coffee every morning, and he has regularly made me laugh. No complaints.

Still, I am glad to be moving on to the next adventure, Wadi Rum tomorrow for a day and a night, and then Aqaba for a couple of days before heading north.

I miss Jane and Kai and Mila and Jason and Kacey, my family.
