Well, the initial plan for the weird Sinai Liberation Day (or as Joe puts it, "The Israelis Kicked Our Ass Day) was to go to the beachside resort of Dahab on the Red Sea and do some windsurfing. Unfortunately, the weather does not always provide - so it goes. In this case, the wind is going to be a measly 6-8 knots all week, barely enough to get the stupid thing moving. I really can't be bothered to go rent some fantastically expensive kit if the wind isn't going to cooperate and I end up sitting in the middle of a - shark-infested? - sea.
So we changed our plans, and the new idea is to go to Petra. If you're a classical history buff, you'll know the city as the ancient Nabatean capital carved out of the walls of a canyon in Southern Jordan. It's pretty incredible stuff. You might also recognize it as the home of the Holy Grail from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Basically, an awesome place.
I'll bring back lots of pictures and hopefully stories, and I'll be gone until Saturday.
