View from our Hotel Window in Petra, Jordan

We just arrived in Petra on a 4-hour road trip from Amman and we needed to get some shut-eye before our Petra by Night Tour to see The Treasury. The room in our hotel (Petra Moon Hotel – Book Here) was good. What made it even better was the view outside.

My wife took a short nap while I was wide awake admiring the scene from our hotel window. After taking a peek outside, I had to see it in full view.

It took some time for me to settle in. I was tired but restless. I was glad to have this view and feel the cold temperature on my skin.

I couldn’t help but reflect and be thankful. It’s been a long while that I was able to ride a plane and travel for travel.

It was only a few minutes left before our call time for the night tour. But in those few minutes, I just had to get lost and stare in the sea of lights from houses on those hills.

Pardon this seemingly trivial post. When you’ve had 3 months of hot summer in the flat city of Dubai, you will appreciate simple things like uneven land and the cool breeze.
