Indiana Jones Date

We went to visit our friends in Jordan over the long weekend. With the help of them and their nanny we got to go explore Petra for a day child-free. Petra is where the last scenes in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade took place and I can see why this was the perfect place for an adventure film. It was spectacular!


"The Treasury" - over 2000 years old


The Amphitheater


"The Monastery" - lies high up on the mountain. We hiked, but there were many Bedouins with teams of donkeys eager to sell us a ride.


For true perspective on the size of this structure, check out that man at the entry. It looks like a simple entry, but at the base is a head-high wall that must be scaled to get in.

Wow, no wonder you didn't call us this past weekend. I'm surprised Rob didn't dress-up like Indiana...he use to when he was little, besides Luke Skywalker and Batman...he was one of Rob's favorite charaters.

So, sometimes I forget you guys are living there living there, and not just doing a study abroad at BYU-Jerusalem.

Umm, wow is all I have to say. That is awesome and I am so jealous. I've always wanted to go there. At least ever since I saw Indiana Jones.

Wow! That is amazing! The color of the rock reminds me of Southern Utah. You guys get to see the coolest things!
