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.

... shelter structures still intact. We then visited Moses Spring where Moses struck the rocks and water sprung forth from the ground while during the exodus from Egypt.

In spite of all the photos you might have seen of Petra and the Siq entrance, nothing quite prepares you for the feeling of awe that you get when you do enter it. Again, another magnificent feat of man - The ...
... with a drink and got the opportunity to meet the son of Marguerite van Geldermalsen the New Zealand woman that married a Bedouin whilst on her O.E.
Feeling refreshed we continued on our trek past the theatre and finally up to a great look out where we got a perspective of the area and a run down on what we could cover on our free day the next day. Having had a pretty long day we made the walk back to our hotel for a rest before our nights activities.
After yesterday's effort of walking almost 30 kilometres in Petra we along with some our fellow travellers decided to have an easy day. Tonight we booked into see the Petra light show. After walking 2 kilometres along a path of sand filled paper bags with candles lit in them, we arrived at the Treasury. It was a sight to behold. There were more candles all in rows in front of the Treasury. We were all seated on mats in front of the building,where we were given ...
