Wadi Rum jeep drive and Exhibition

In the morning we could finally see where we were : The Mountain Rocks were high and carved. When we climbed up on the rocks you could see the clear blue sky, the strech of desert and camels glistening in the morning sun. We ate breakfast at the Bedouin camp. It was pita,eggs, spices and jam. At 9am we all climbed into two jeeps to take us on a 4hr tour of Wadi Rum. It was such fun! Maybe the equal favourite thing so far (along with Mount Sinai). We stopped off at several places and could run down the gigantic sand dunes before climbing back up and going down them in the jeep. We also climbed on lots of the rocks and we stood on this 'bridge like one' which was quite high! Our jeep (which we named Rusty - for reasons which will become clear) could not get up several hills and we would roll down the hill! Rusty also had to keep being filled up with bottles of water. Our drivers were also really nice. My brother had bought a headress when we stopped at a bedouin tent for a drink and in the strong wind the headband of it flew off and into the desert. The man stopped the jeep but by this time the band was a good 300m back. But instead of using the jeep he got out and ran to get it!. All too soon the 4 hrs were over and we got back onto our bus and drove to a restaurant it was lovely. After that we watched a video and looked at an Exhibition about Wadi Rum. We also saw the 7 pillars of Wisdom. Next it was a two our drive to the hotel (The Oscar Hotel). My mum and dad went to see Petra in the dark and they said it was beautiful. We all looked forward to seeing it in the daylight tomorrow.....
