The hotel was fine... a bland modern place with a maze of corridors downstairs and a slightly unfinished feel on the accommodation floors. The setting was perfect, just a few hundred metres from the entrance to the Petra world heritage site. It's on a side street so very quiet, but with plenty of restaurants just steps away. My only minor quibble about the hotel would be the showers, but I don't expect much water pressure in the desert.

Little boy dancing to the music at Petra
Once we got to the main temple it was like a little circus. There
were camels to ride, donkeys to take you to the next part of town as
well as little children selling souvenirs by the boat load. These kids
were amazingly cute and some of them were amazing ...
... Makes you think especially when it comes to showers and sure can understand the need for half baths...But on the other hand, the hotels may well put up their notices about the importance of being careful with water but they don’t do anything to make their own supply of hot water any more efficient advising us to let the hot water tap run for a few minutes then hot water will come….but it in fact rarely did! Bar the genuine warmth ...
... view. It was every bit as impressive an entrance to Petra as I had hoped for. The tomb facade towers above the entrance at something like 70 or 80 feet. The designs are amazingly intact due to the fact that the facades are mostly protected from weather erosion since they are recessed carvings in the stone. Lindsey explained that the chipping and holes mostly located in the top center design were from locals who used to shoot it hoping that it would break open ...
... a lot of propaganda promoting how brilliant the Nabataeans were. Bedouin children act as donkey guides and pester you. Can't help thinking that in a normal developed country, you'd install trams and buses, but in Jordan they need employment, so these bedouins live off tourists. Sometimes seems like the only words these kids know are "dinar" (Jordanian currency), dollar, biscuit and chocolate. We had two kids pester us for a "biscuit" while we were eating pita ...
... gut once we got there, walked around the corner and got another taxi driver to take us to the bus station where there were about 40 buses waiting, all heading south! Sometimes it's best to trust your instincts. The bus was going to cost 7 JD each (around AU$10), wasn't leaving for at least an hour and would take twice as long to get there as a car. There was a service taxi there that would leave right away, get us there in around 3 hours and cost 15 JD each - so we took ...
