One person is a video game tester. Part of her job entails making sure gamers can't give their characters (avatars) offensive names. She does this ...
... to negotiate the price down but just before 8 we are on our way. It is a long way to Petra from here, around 150 km but luckily our driver doesn't hang around and we set off at a very impressive speed. We pass the sign for Wadi Rum, but sadly today we won't have the time to enjoy the spectacular scenery there. What surprises us is how green the countryside is the further away from the coast we get, we are not talking lush green forests, but there are lichens, flowers, the ...
