FROM PETRA I TOOK THE BUS GOING TO THE CITY OF AQABA, THE FIVE HOURS OF TRAVELLING IN THE DESERT IS REALLY BEAUTIFUL THAT THE BUS WILL CROSS SEVERAL HIGH MOUNTAIN OF DESERT. THE FORMATION OF SEVERAL SAND IS LIKE WORK OF ART DONE BY NATURE. I TOOK THESE PICTURES INDIDE THE BUS.

ARRIVED IN CITY OF AQABA ALMOST DARK ALREADY BUT I ENJOY THE SUNSET ON THE FRONT OF MY ROOM. THE RESORT IS JUST NEWLY BUILT AND THE ROOM PRICE IS LIKE PROMO PRICE.

EVERYWHERE I GO FOR CHEAPER MEAL, THE SOLUTION IS THE MCDONALD. MCDONALD IS EVERYWHERE. THE CITY OF AQABA IS THE ONLY PORT IN JORDAN . THAT MAKES THEM THE CENTER OF THE TRADE. FAMOUS FOR ARABIAN NIGHT STORIES WHERE THE ADVENTURES OF SINBAD.ALSO THE LAWRENCE OF ARABIA  IN WHICH TE LAWRENCE LED THE BATTLE OF AQABA AND AQABA BECAME BRITISH TERRETORIES IN 1925.

THE SHADOW OF PINOY TRAVELLER WALKING FROM THE RESORT TO THE CITY OF  AQABA APPROXIMATELY 18 Km. THE COASTAL ROAD IS VERY BEAUTIFUL AND WELL IMPROVED.

GOING BACK TO THE RESORT AND ITS FOUR OCLOCK IN THE AFTERNOON, SO INEED TO BARGAIN FOR TAXI. AND THE DRIVER AGREED WHILE WE ARE ON THE WAY TO THE RESORT THE TAXI DRIVER MAKE A QUICK LEFT TURN THAT MAKE ME NERVOUS BECAUSE THE NEIGHBOHOOD IS SO GHETTO.THEN ASKED THE DRIVER AND HE TOLD ME THAT HE NEED TO BUY GAS ON THIS AREA, THE GAS HERE ARE SMUGGLED IN SAUDI ARABIA  THAT MAKES MORE CHEAPER PRICE THAN IN THE CITY WHICH 10 Km AWAY ON THAT AREA.AND THOSE CHILDREN PLAYING IN THE STREET ARE CURIOUS WHERE I CAME FROM AND VERY FRIENDLY EVEN THEY DONT SPEAK ENGLISH.

THIS PICTURE WAS TAKEN INFRONT THE RESORT. AND THE FAMOUS SEA IN THE BIBLE THE RED SEA.THE BACKGROUND IS THE MT SINAI IN EGYPT IN WHICH MOSES PART THE SEA AND LED THE IRAELLITES TO CROSS THE SEA.
