Well I am back to regular life and right in the thick of it. It is my busy time at work so that is my main focus for the next several months (gotta fund my travels). I hope to get Sunday Special back on and also a few other posts as well. Please bear with me! 🙂
After Wadi Rum we still had adventure ahead of us. Our group’s last stop before returning to Amman was in the south of Jordan, in Aqaba. Here we spent a perfect afternoon aboard a boat aptly named “Freedom” while cruisin’ the Red Sea. And for those of us who wanted (and I wanted) we could snorkel with the fish. Additionally, from this area we could see Israel & Egypt across the way. Heading a bit further we could also see Saudi Arabia. This section of the Red Sea is a confluence of nations.
Soon the group tour was coming to a close. We headed back to Amman and had our final farewell dinner (& some shisha) the next night. I still had two days so I did some sightseeing, shopping, and took a cooking class. At the cooking class (on a patio kitchen) we enjoyed our dinner and were able to see part of a Jordanian wedding ritual next door. The bride was being picked up the groom and friends where she was serenaded and celebrated. What an unexpected treat!
