Arabian Days

We spent four days in the Wadi Rum desert in southern Jordan near the Saudi border.  That gave us plenty of time for some adventures . . .

David running down a big red sand dune that we had just climbed
Sara gazing out over Saudi Arabia (the mountains in the distance) on a hike in Wadi Rum
David learning to drive in the desert
Riding camels with the Bedouin!
On top of a rock bridge in Wadi Rum

And some time for relaxing . . .

David and Atalah, a local Bedouin, playing cards
We loved "Bedouin whiskey" (i.e., sweet Bedouin tea) and drank at least ten cups a day!
