Day 6 - Aqaba

Back to the Desert Highway, past the Hejez Railway (the one Lawrence and his mates blew up) and down past dyke-veined mountains to aqaba. Checked into the Golden Tulip Hotel after stopping for a falafel sandwich. Callum and I took a taxi to a beach down the coast where we went snorkelling on the reef. Loads of fish - just like the Maldives.

Met a Belgian couple who we had seen in the Wadi Rum - small world and had fun swimming chatting and lazing around in the sun. They also had a swimming pool for some non-salty swims. This was in real contrast to the desert!

Clocked this internet cafe on the way in - so here I am after a nice dinner with white wine and red snapper in a local fish restaurant. Sat next to Gogan, our guide. Very nice guy with five kids and very knowedgeable. I like the Exodus ide of only staying in Jordan owned hotels. We're getting a real feel for the people and places.

The people in Jordan are very proud, respectful and courteous. Very different from Morocco, Tunisia and Egypt. No hassle at all. It seems very stable politically with pics of King Abdullah every where. Very little sign of heavy security - they must be undercover if they're around at all.
