The weather has turned colder. So much so that on our second morning in Petra we wake to snow! I rush to make a notice suggesting activities and warn against hiking in the high paths in teh snow. Later that day the snow turns to rushing water and Petra is evacuated.
I stay in the hotel, working with Coco and Mike, colleagues who are leading tours here also. Similar tours but different directions from here. No vehicles coming in or out, travel agents frustrated, tour leaders frustrated but resigned to the weather, and group wanting to get on the road but contenting with Petra pizzas and the pub for the time being...
We have change plans to drive to Little Petra for a late afternoon gambol in the snow and in many ways it is more atmospheric than Petra itself. But atmosphere or not, the mission is to somehow get out of Petra and down to the desert of Wadi Rum.
