GOING TO THE CITY OF PETRA IS REALLY A BIG PROBLEM TO COMMUNUTE BECAUSE THE BUS COMPANY DONT WANT TO OPERATE THEIR BUS DUE TO SNOW IN THE ROAD AND THE ONLY WAY YOU CAN GO IS BY TAXI BUT YOU NEED TO PAY ROUND TRIP THAT WILL COST YOU APROXIMATELY MORE THAN TWO HUNDRED JORDAN DINAR..THOSE TAXI DRIVER HERE ARE TAKING ADVANTAGES OF THE SITUATION . NOW I NEED TO STAY INSIDE THE BUS COMPANY WAITING FOR THEIR MAIN OFFICE TO LET THEIR BUS TO OPERATE.FINALLY IN THE AFTERNOON THEY HAVE THE GO SIGNAL AFTER THE ROAD WAS BEEN CLEARED. AND IT COST ME NINE JORDAN DINAR FOR TWO HOURS TRIP TO PETRA. THIS PICTURES WAS TAKEN ON THE ROOF TOP OF THE HOTEL I STAYED.THERE IS NO HOSTEL IN THIS CITY BUT THE HOTEL RATE ARE SO REASONABLE.DUE TO THE SEASON . THERE IS NO SNOW IN THE CITY BUT THE BREEZE IS FREEZING.

THE RUIN IS ONLY HOUR AWAY FROM THE HOTEL BUT YOU NEED TO LEAVE EARLY IF YOU WANT TO ENJOY THE WHOLE PETRA.I HAVE BEEN WALKING INSIDE THE WHAT THEY CALLED THE BIG PETRA FROM NINE OCLOCK IN THE MORNING TILL EIGHT IN THE EVENING.THE SITE IS SO HUGE THAT BEFORE YOU REACH THE SUMMIT WITH THE BORDER OF ISRAEL .YOU NEED TO WALK AROUND FIFTHEEN KILOMETER ONE WAY.AND FOR THE ENTRANCE FEE IS FIFTHY JORDAN DINAR.THIS TOUR SUPPOSED TO BE AT LEAST TWO DAYS TOUR BUT I WANT TO SAVE.AND DO IT IN ONE DAY.THE SITE IS OPEN TILL TEN PM.THOSE PICTURES SHOWING THOSE CANYON YOU ARE GOING TO WALK.
