Mehedi and Salem on the top of Jebel Rum many years ago now!
Today I would like to invite you to take a few minutes out from your work day to daydream, and read about Pat & Larry Ernst's memories of Wadi Rum:
Our journey through Jordan from Amman to Aqaba included a 1 day 1 night guide though Wadi Rum with Bedouin Directions. Eid was our guide for the day. There were many things about our desert experience that I remember: lunch prepared in the desert, watching my husband climb the rocks up to the arch, trekking thru the narrow pass, gathering for dinner at camp with everyone sharing stories. I do wish we could have spent more time at Wadi Rum and perhaps one day we will be able to journey back.
If I were to share just one moment of that trek it would be watching the evening sun set and the moon rise over the red desert. One cannot always plan the "perfect" moment but, it was as if everything was in alignment that night. Even tho the temp was cooling off, it was a magical, I could photograph the sun and the moon at the same exact time. And remind myself that I was in the desert in Jordan far far from home. Things like that are priceless, unplanned and totally spontaneous.
Thank you to all the people that have already responded to my post yesterday and written to my e-mail address with your memories of Wadi Rum... keep them coming... Insha'Allah.
