I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Entering Petra

There were a few other tourists in the Siq, but for most of the walk it was just me and my guide, Mahmout. Entering Petra, walking into this plaza in front of the iconic Treasury, was so thrilling I almost cried. And I was glad that there was suddenly a crowd because I was so happy I needed to be sharing it with other humans.

(Yes, I do remember what that feels like, barely -- humanity as something I want to be around rather than a collection of potential pandemic hosts I desperately want to avoid.)
