Breakfast was delicious. My favorite things were a stuffed tomato and a piece of toast that was loaded with so much green spice (pesto?) I expected quite a kick - it was so light and delicious. After breakfast, i went to the bus stop (see previous post). Then, I made it back into Petra and got to see a lot of things I missed on the first day. I went into more tombs, found and walked along a Roman road, found a church with beautiful mosaics, revisited the Roman temple, and had tea with a Beoduin woman and her children. Going through customs, I met a German woman who sat behind me on the bus to Petra. We talked and she gave me a ride to the airport. Her name is Sigi. I am now at the Eilat airport. I am getting wifi bars, but it's a lie. In a bit, I fly to Tel Aviv and take a bus to Jerusalem. Final thoughts on Petra: it reminds me a lot of a mixture of Mesa Verde and Pompeii. But has the advantage of free roaming among the ruins. As a whole, I probably like Pompeii more for the company (I love you adventure partner) and familiarity of the site (79 AD is one of those dates you just know) I will publish all of these as soon as I can. Be home soon.
