Sightseeing Saturday

Today I will share more images with you from Petra. We took a tour bus there which was an early morning ride, with a stop for breakfast along the way, and once we arrived to Petra, we were told we had 4 hours to explore before we had to load back onto the bus. Those 4 hours were spent walking as it took a couple of hours just to get to the National Treasury which I showed you last week. We didn't even make it to the very end because of the time constraints. These photos are from the area beyond the National Treasury.


Zack wrote a donkey but Yusef said he couldn't take the smell.

Our friend who lives in Jordan was with us for the trip. This is a picture of him and Sam from behind. I love candid shots like this.

Wherever we go in the world, I always get a picture in a doorway or unusual entrway.

Next week, Wadi Rum where there are shifting sands.
Peace & blessings, Tammy

Oh, Tammy, honey, how I wish I could see the things that you see.It has always been my heart's desire to travel...sigh. But life's responsibilities always too over - bummer. I'd love to sit at your kitchen table and go through your photo albums.

BTW, check out this blog: http://tinyurl.com/y9hze43 She's got a recipe for homemade red velvet cake. Remember my raspberry truffle? Here you go - now you have a little recipe for the cake! Bet your friends at work would just drool☺

How exciting!!!!
I love it when you take me on trips of places I've never been :)
I wish you would have had more time to explore. It makes it bad when there is time constraints.
I love the photo of Yusef and the camels!!! Too cool! I don't think I've ever seen a camel in real life. {I know, I'm so sheltered ha!}
Enjoy exploring and thanks again for taking us along, I enjoyed the ride tremendously~
I can't wait until next week!
everything vintage

Tammy,
Thanks for stopping by! Strangely enough, the snow around here was pretty much gone the next day. NOT that it's WARM or anything...but no snow.I stood outside the office (3 of us from my office) from 7-10am on Friday (Syracuse Newspapers Old Newsboys)to raise money for the Christmas Bureau, as I do every year and froze my patutti off. I think it only got to be about 17* on Friday. We're in for a little warm up starting today from what I hear.

Looks like your site-seeing brings you to wonderful places! I watch a lot of the History channel and Discovery on TV and always tune in when they are profiling Egypt or anything to do with ancient biblical areas of the world. Your photos reminded me of those shows. How lucky you are to be able to visit ancient places in the world.

If I remember, you are from around here, right? Anytime you want to know what's going on around here, let me know. :-)

Tammy! I have a few connections to Kuait with family members having lived their many years. What a joy that you have the internet to keep in touch with America. My childhood spent in Turkey without radio or television has made me old fashioned for life! Your family outing recalls many I had with my own parents. Beautiful in it's starkness. Thank you so very much for visiting my blog. It's lovely to meet you! Elizabeth

You have been to the most wonderful places. Petra looks amazing, and I love the picture of you in the doorway. I seem to remember you in the door of the Alamo last summer. I got a picture of Omar and Dany from behind walking up to the next tee at golf yesterday. Very cool picture to get people from behind like that.
Hope you get some down time at some point...

Love,
Renee
