Race for the Grail & Snow in Amman
We got back to Petra from Wadi Rum by 3;15 and I reckoned that I still had time to jog the 2.5 km into Petra to see the “Treasury,” one of two spectacular Nabatean tombs, and be out by the time we had to leave at 4, although to see everything, takes a couple of days. At 4:30, we headed back to Amman for a final half-day of site-seeing, before returning to Jerusalem, although our final day was cancelled by large storm coming down from Turkey, which resulted in 4 inches of snow in Amman. It was still a great trip.
