What goes up must come down and as it was now gone 4pm, it was time to start heading back as visitors must be out of the city by sunset. The return walk whilst easier on the thighs with a downhill decline, still took quite some time and we had to walk at a real pace, it was exhausting. We were cheered on by one Bedouin just gently trotting along on his donkey playing ‘Don’t worry be happy’ on his mini hi-fi ...
... Colonnaded Street. It was then up further to see the well preserved mosaics inside the Blue Church (they certainly used to love blue).Lastly it was a trip to the largest excavated area of the Royal Tombs which cover about 200m of sandstone rock face and vary in both size and magnificence.After all this we were completely exhausted, having drank about nearly 8L of water and covering a total of 20kms by the time we trudged back to our hotel.
We once again took ...
