Don't expect me to say too much about Petra. It's an absolute must see, that everybody has already heard about, seen in pictures or TV.
I only say, "I’m glad I've been there".
If you are a "quick tourist", the kind that feels the place, sees the highlights, and move to the next subject, a full day will be enough for you, but if you are the kind of people that observes each stone and demands the full story of each building, then you will get old in place. Fortunately, the best areas have... shades!
It was fun, the popular festival in the streets of Petra, in a warm Friday night.
Though mainly male (naturally... it’s a Muslim country), the occidental women were well accepted, even by the Jordanian women smiling from their discreet chairs in the back.
Sympathy and security were always present.
Fernanda had her great day. She was happy and danced. A blond... Success!
