The rest of Petra

Petra is HUGE!  It took us about 2 days to truly discover it and even then, I think we skipped certain areas. We did a lot of climbing and going off the beaten track.  We found stray cats and kittens, I had sweet tea with a Bedouin lady who tried to sell me some silver and then insulted everyone, we rode on donkeys up steep stairs and we managed to avoid all the massive crowds.  All in all, it was a fun two days and I was so proud of my lungs.  This time last year, I could't walk up a flight of stairs and now I can climb up ancient rocks - thank you prednisone, but also thank you dry, warm air.
