day 6/7 - petra

I'm chillin in Petra right now facing "The Monastery," which is like a
bigger and less ornate "Treasury" that most of you should recognize
from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. So far this has been the
highlight of the trip. Magnificent ruins, great hiking, and the
freedom to explore - Petra's got it all. It puts to shame most ruins
that I've seen outside of
Egypt. We planned to spend three days here, but clearly we cover more
ground than the Lonely Planet authors. We may be out of here tomorrow
to check out Amman.
