Petra, Jordan

This desert city of the Nabataeans was a breathtaking site.  I spent an entire day climbing its towering rocks, discovering its passageways, and admiring its colored walls.

But the first thing that comes to mind when I reminisce about the place was these two camels.  It was late afternoon and the site was almost empty.  On our way out, we passed by a shop whose owners invited us for some tea.  So we decided to stay and relax for a bit.  After  all, what’s better than sipping turkish tea with a 6th century World Heritage site as a backdrop?

All of a sudden, I heard a startled shout and saw people pointing behind me.  I turned around and caught this whimsical scene. Camera shutters clicked furiously while their owner scrambled to get them apart.

    Ha, you captured such an awesome (and amusing) moment! That first photograph is wonderful as well; Petra is on my list, but I’m not sure when I’ll make it over in there.

    Thanks, also, for visiting my blog and leaving a note.



    1. Yeah, it was quite adorable… and shocking. Even our guide was surprised; apparently that “activity” doesn’t occur often in public.
