Petra -famous temples in mountain gorges as featured in Indiana Jones does something or other ...

Good things
Huge temples carved into the mountain side and the odd one on top of the mountain.
Had to scramble up 800 steps avoiding tourists on donkeys and bead sellers but the view over the mountains to Israel was spectacular.
Eerie wailing of Imans resonating around the mountains at sunset
Being driven along Kings Highway and traversing enormous canyons - similar to the Grand canyon

Bad things
High rate of water perspiration into hat from 8 hours of wandering around with the camels.
Hat washing required
