... to provide the expectant traveller with a new experience when there is not much here?........the people though are very nice, friendly, moderate and tollerant beings that make you feel welcome. We opted for a 10 hour tour 100+ miles through the desert today to the Ancient City of Petra - and although the 2.5hr bus trip was as interesting as watching paint dry - the result when you get there was ...
