Petra Treasury Jordan

Petra Treasury Jordan

A big joy I find in traveling is the people we meet.
At Petra, the hubby got into a serious discussion
with the very friendly taxi driver.
The driver was interested in me
(married isn’t REALLY married
unless the couple has kids)
due to my blue eyes
(considered lucky)
but was bemoaning his financial situation.
He said that every wife
(I’d be the second)
expected her own household
and if he couldn’t afford that,
he coudn’t afford another wife.
He also said that I, as a foreigner,
would never do as first wife.
That honor always falls to a girl
from the same culture
(to raise the kids).

    We “me and family” made a trip to Petra in Jordan in April 2007. it was a piece of art and fabulous.
    We flew from Berlin to Amman- Jordan. We traveled at modern buses with a guide/driver.

    Our route was Amman, Jerash, Ajloun , Petra , Dead Sea.

    On the way we experienced architectural, archaeological, historical and cultural places: noble mosques, interesting museums, ancient castle, unique ruins, stone paths, the lowest point on earth with mineral salty water at Dead sea. Also we went to see how nomads live in their tents.
    Before our trip we got a lot of warnings and surprising comments on Jordanians’ hostility toward Westerners. Anyhow in every city, town and village we felt ourselves very welcome and every person was polite and hospitable to us.

    Our guide was the best possible guide. His knowledge of Jordan, the past and the present is enormous and his driving style is convincing, A trip with him was like a trip with a friend not with a formal guide. From my experience, http://libertytourism.com/Programs.html is one of the best tours at Jordan where all you may need and ask on one place. Hans Herrman
