A mere nine years after I was first planning to see it, here it is: the first glimpse of the Treasury from inside the Siq, the long narrow canyon that leads to Petra.
My laptop battery is almost run down, and for some reason the adaptors that worked perfectly fine in Amman don't fit in the outlets here, so this is all I'm going to post today.
Plus I'm exhausted. Apart from the hiking, I also rode a mule for a couple of hours, up narrow stone steps to the Monastery and back down again. It was absolutely worth it, but not exactly comfortable and I won't be able to sit down tomorrow; honestly I can barely sit down right now.
Tomorrow night I'm playing Kathleen of Arabia and staying in a Bedouin camp at Wadi Rum, so I won't be back online until Thursday when I have a long layover en route to Paris.
But I had to get this up. Many, many more pictures to follow.
