Petra Travel Guide: 993 reviews and 2,608 photos

19th April 2005 ( Thursday )
Another busy & hectic day for me in this first trip to The Middle East !
Woke up really early in Madaba, just so that I could take a school bus or rather a university bus to Karak Town.
The bus was supposed to be departed from Madaba at 7 am but it was late...
Anyway, read the story HERE...


Here you can see the photos that I took during the night roaming that I did along The Siq & infront of The Treasury.
Started at about 8 pm until 10 pm & the price is JD 12.
PAGE 1 : First is the photo of Wadi Musa at night. Then, walking along The Siq, watching the candles in paperbags...Until we reached in front of The Treasury.
PAGE 2 : We were treated with sweet ancient music & herbal tea. I smoked as usual...Looking at the bright moon on the night sky. That was a good feeling.
Then, one by one of us walked back...Me, back to my hotel in Wadi Musa.
