Photo Friday: Petra, Jordan

This week’s photos are from Petra, Jordan. These rock buildings were carved out of the cliffs in the 6th century as the capital city of the Nabataeans. Now it is Jordan’s most popular tourist attraction.

Beer Truck

When taxi cabs and public buses fail you, try the beer truck instead. We found ourselves stuck in a small town, a mere intersection really, between Lalibela and Dessie, in the African country of Ethiopia. It was in fact a holiday, and buses were scarce.
