Petra and Wadi Rum

This weekend was a blast! Lol it started out at 5:30 am when we arrived at the bus station.

Around 11 we arrived at our first stop, Petra. The landscape was pretty stark but the giant rocks and the unobstructed views were amazing. We walked for about 30 minutes until we reached the famous treasury. The way was lined with smooth walls tht hid the treasury until the last second.

After climbing and exploring some more we headed back to the bus tired and reaaalllly thirsty.

We bought some food and water on the way and then watched out the window as we left civilization farther and farther behind. After several hours we reached what looked like a campsite far in the distance. The bus stopped and we all got out literally in the middle of the desert. We had arrived at Wadi Rum.

A little pickup truck pulled up and we all hopped in the back. The guy florred it and we all screamed and laughed as we flew accross the desert to our camp site. Then we unloaded our stuff and settled into our tents. After that we got back in the truck and went for an even crazier ride. I lost my sunglasses during this excursion lol but it was well worth it. Later we climbed some rocks and this hill of sand that took some serious effort to run up-haha it was much more fun running down. :)

After a long day we headed to a hugh plateau to watch the sunset. It was absolutely beautiful!!

Then we all headed back to the campsite for dinner and.... a HAFLA!! (party)

To be continued...
