Monday, Wadi Rum
After a short drive into Aqaba for food, we drove to Wadi Rum for a 4WD trip then desert camp. There is a definite change when you enter Jordan. As soon as we got off the truck in Aqaba we had people welcoming us to Jordan and we could walk past shops without shopkeepers trying to drag us into their shops. Main difference it was clean-a major difference, no trash blowing around. Wadi Rum could be Jordan's answer to Monument Valley in the US. Same but different and camping under the stars is always specular in the desert. Was out photographing from 5 to 8 AM. Then around noon left for Petra which may be the most spectacular stop of out trip.
