The Seven Pillars of Wisdom
I found out from my guide, that it takes a full day in a jeep or 4-5 days by camel to see all of Wadi Rum, and that the best time to do a camel trek is in summer when the storms are finished and the nights are warm. This remains an ambition for me, but I’m satisfied that I got a good idea of it and took over 100 photographs, including one of the famous Hejaz railway, which is now reduced to transporting phosphate to Aqaba. Here I'm standing at the 7 Pillars Rock, named for the famous book by T.E. Lawrence.
