wadi rum, jordan:

After exploring Petra, it was off to Wadi Rum - a two hour drive south of Wadi Musa.
Wadi Rum is the desert area flanked by sculptural pillars, made infamous by T.E. Lawrence - aka - Lawrence of Arabia. We spent the day four-wheel driving with our Bedouin guide, exploring all the different formations, and finishing off with an amazing sunset that illuminated the whole area. We then spent the night camping in the desert, star gazing and listening to our guide play and sing traditional Bedouin music. It was a pretty special experience and a must if you visit Jordan.

Next: our Jordan wrap up and then it's on to Egypt!
