Things aren't always as clear as they are in Canada. Off we went to pick up the Alford family that were visiting Jordan for a week. What a great time for the kids to have other kids their age …

The walk back out of the park was focused in order to get back to the bus on time, but thankfully we didn't have to rush too much. I took off from the group to go check out the biggest tomb facade we had missed going the other way because it was behind a hill to the north. Other than a nice shot of the front, there wasn't much to see inside. One interesting thing I had noted in a different tomb that I saw again here is that the ...
