It’s been a busy day at the job that pays the bills. So just a quick sneak peek post today about our visit to the ancient Nabataean city of Petra. We visited this magic place not only during the day, but also walked the mile long narrow canyon to legendary Al-Khazneh, the Treasury, when it was candle lit at night. Full post coming up on the weekend.

Wish you a great Tuesday!

This is how The Significant Other and myself did spend our Halloween evening. Taking a splash in the Dead Sea. We’re both in this picture (courtesy to a smartphone picture by our friend Ralf). Life’s been crazy lately, but I’m still alive. Sandwiched between business trips to the USA and India, the wife and I are spending a week touring beautiful Jordan.
