We actually went there on a cruise. We rented a car and headed for the famous falls. Traffic was stopped due flooding from the rain. We were advised by the locals to return the car as it was dangerous driving in parts of town trying to avoid the flooding. Glad you had good experiences getting around except waisted time.

Writing Skill
You write in a very personable way describing observations and experiences as you have them but also in a very informative way. I could picture myself there with you.

Happy Birthday
What an unusual and memorable way to celebrate a birthday. I'm a little late in reading your biog since I've was preparing my house for spring and my trip to Iceland. My computer will not let me download my photos so I need to wait until I get home to share photos and comments about my tour.

I just enjoy whatever you choose to write. We leave for Turkmenistan & Uzbekistan Monday. We've had so many issues that travel isn't first on our minds. This is an exciting trip, but we are preoccupied with health issues now which includes our whole family. Thanks for keeping me on your blog. Barbara

Last days of OAT Tour
Laura, your last account was the best. Many thanks for sharing your memoirs of the trip with us... As during the trip, you made everything more real and memorable. All the best to you...Paul & Karin

Your memoir of Jerusalem reminds us the many devout pilgrims, especially from developing countries, who were doing the stations of the cross. In my opinion they are the best hope for the future of organized religion.

My most interesting part of Jerusalem was the tunnel as well as Via Dolorosa. We had 3 guards (1 in front, 1 in the missle & 1 in the back with their guns keeping us tight), It was a place we could revisit easily. Enjoying revisiting it through your blogs. Thanks. We leave in 15 days for the Stans.

Glad You Are Having A Great Trip
Happy Birthday-- you were in a special place. I agree that the 'birthplace of Jesus' is unassuming, but quite powerful nonetheless. Glad you were able to sneak down to exit ramp:)

Jerusalem birthday
So glad you had a happy birthday. I'll wish you belated happy birthday wishes. I felt the exact same way when we took our family to Costa Rica on an OAT tour (15 of us) & woke up to share glorious days with our loved ones.(sons, grandsons & their wives)

Petra - Jordan
I love your description, Laura, as it reminds me of our experiences.
From Blog: Petra, Jordan
1st May 2018

Glad to see you are still traveling.
Appreciate the info as we have not been to Jordan yet. Just got back from a Dutch Waterways cruise and about to head to Japan and the S Africa later in the summer.

Connie and I will visit Israel and Egypt this fall. We enjoy your musings on travel, but don't have your stamina anymore. Bedtime is earlier and the hip and knee I bought from the Orthopod makes me a little robotic so I'm not a fast. We will watch for your bog on Petra.

Enjoyed your comments about Jordan
30th April 2018

Hi Laura, I have a travel show just on Jordan. We only stayed a week, but it was memorable. Of course, Petra was the gem. You'll have to tell me your experiences later when you've been there. There is another path up to the top, so if time make sure you see it & it's from the end past the treasury. We did only one & it was amazing & so windy that we thought we'd be blown off, but there was a 2nd trail by the ampitheater (I think). We're off to Turkmenistan May 20..
