What I learnt in Petra

The treasury

The treasury.


– Once you get passed the treasury the other tourists dwindle. Massively.

– You have to wear walking shoes if you go much beyond the treasury.

– I don’t know how to use a DSLR camera. (Sorry English couple with baby).

– ‘No’ doesn’t mean no to many men.


A bit of Petra.

A bit of Petra.


– Jack Sparrow is popular among Bedouin men.

– Apparently French tourists like to sleep in Bedouin caves in Petra.

– It is huge.

– It is impressive.

– If you stay till about 7pm you’ll get to enjoy it with no one else there.



The monastery.

Something I learnt this morning

- Don’t book a flight with KLM if you think you might cancel it. They will s***w you on the refund.


Things I learnt this week

- Sausages, if not cooked to a crisp, are quite gross.

– 1 in 2 Syrians are either dead or a refugee.

– Telemedicine is more common than you might think.

– Life is just the same without Instagram.

– We will get to the promised land.

– Medellin, Colombia, an inspiration for societal integration, but it’s hitting a bumpy patch.
