Aqaba! The name itself engenders images of Sinbad the sailor and The thousand and one Arabian nights. Ones first glimpse of the port does nothing to dispel this illusion. There are palm trees and bare Rocky Mountains and the desert beyond. The trip to the ancient lost city of Petra takes 2 1/2 hours during which the visitor examines a cross section of Jordanian society. From the native Hashamites to the now more urban Bedouin ...

A hour bus ride up the road from Aqaba lies the desert oasis ...
