... hassled given that we don't tend to cover up like the locals when swimming. Even the Jordanian beaches in the area are so close to Saudi Arabia that they are much more conservative than the rest of the country. It will be interesting to see if / how the norms evolve as Aqaba strives to grow into a full fledged international beach destination.

... east of the Desert Highway. It was an hour-and-a-half drive from Petra, and we reached the new visitors' center around 9:00am. The center sits about 5 miles north of the village of Rum -- where we were to meet our guide. We were to pay our entrance fee (a nominal $7 per adult) at the visitors' center and continue south.

"Will that be a super size meal?", and then they serve half of it on to the tray to get cold while the rest is prepared. The Big Mac index in Jordan is AU$5.20, so food is quite cheap, as you will no doubt have remembered from our $3 meals in Amman.

... it could be the oldest bar in the world, according to lonely planet. Unfortunately the beer tasted like it was shipped in 2000 years ago. I swapped to a mohito that was even worse - probably to be expected in a Muslim country though I guess! On Thursday we visited the Dead Sea.
