Hi for the last time!

We are only in Jordan for 1 clear day, so going to the lost city 'Petra' was a must. One of the Indiana Jones films was made here, the place is awesome!! It took 2 hours to get there by car but was worth it.

Petra first became occupied over 2200 years ago by an Arabian tribe called 'Nabataeans', it later became occupied by the Greeks & Romans. Petra was only re-discovered by a Swiss Traveller in 1812. Petra is a big tick in the box as it's one of the seven wonders of the ancient world!

Got back after 7pm and a quick turaround before dinner and tacky gift ceremony! It's a real shame that our last port of call is Jordan as alcohol is really expensive! I paid £7.50 for a gin & tonic last night!!

Each crew memeber had to buy a tacky gift no more the $5 to present to one another - I really liked my gift, it was an Indian puppet & a rope full of little elephants!

Sorry this is a short one but its 0020 Local time and I havent packed my case yet for check-out in the morning.

I am gonna sign off now, I hope you have enjoyed reading about my adventure and It has been my pleaseure to share it with you.
