Getting our protein from fried eggs on pizza! It’s always a surprise when ordering food without a menu in a different country. I apologize Abby and Brooke when I said, “I got this”. I don’t got this.
On the road for the big trip of the season, to Petra! We make a stop on the road in the mountains for a panoramic view of Wadi Mujib. It is hard to tell if it is the heat or the distance that makes the view through the vast valleys hazy. Sitting on a ledge with the winding road below us, this is the perfect place to stretch our legs and get a breath of fresh air!
Jerash is a beautiful Roman city in Jordan filled with theatres, temples, and columns. It is a fairy large site, but surprisingly, only about 15% of the original city has been excavated. I ran into a fellow archaeologist from the University of Copenhagen who I had met the day before in a tea shop in Madaba who gladly shared the history and current excavations of a mosque that undergo Jerash. The photo is taken inside one of the ampitheatres.
