After yesterday’s foolishness, we sailed into the port of Aquaba, Jordan. Aquaba was freed from the control of the Ottoman Empire in 1917 under the leadership of T.E. Lawrence aka "Lawrence of Arabia." Jordan is now ruled by King Hussein and Queen Noor.

This area’s biggest attraction is the lost city of Petra, "The Rose Red City" so called because it has been carved out of pink coloured cliffs. Originally built by ...

At the entrance to the canyon however some Bedoins (nomadic goat hearders) informed us the canyon was impassable due to flooding. At this point, had we ...

... up since arriving in Jordan. I almost passed by one dim shop window, but spied a lovely specimen out of the corner of my eye. As I peered in, the lights magically came on, and a sweet old man opened the door to beckon me inside. His tanned leathery face lit up when he heard my name: "It's an Arabic name!", he smiled. He was even more delighted to learn that I was from Canada, and told me that my voice was "beautiful, like butter flowing out of your throat". I've ...
