She does get around, doesn’t she?
Mummy said she wasn’t going to spend time doing our blog on HER holiday and finally getting to a place that had long been on her “bucket list” …But something happened that changed her mind. They were on the main trail that leads to The Treasury – and as the got through that narrow gap …The first thing that Mummy saw after she went “Wow!” – she saw a dog in the midst of all that was going on. Hawkers, people peddling wares, camels and donkeys.And then she saw another! She was excited! 🙂
But there’s a photo app that needed to be taken. After Mummy took hers and then one with ImpostorShe wanted one of just Impostor.
Everyone offered to help position Impostor – the driver and one of the guys selling wares.
At first they suggested putting a rock to hold the two-dimensional me but then the guy saw that it had a stand at the back.So he hid behind holding ImpostorThey were such good sports!
Now that got her startedShe asked if these two guards would take a photo with Impostor and they declined saying they would look silly posing with a cardboard photo! However they wouldn’t mind if either Mummy or the driver was in the photo. Well, that was easy.
Next, the camel was the target.
Even the camel was unsure about Impostor.And what about the dog – the one with a collar. Mummy thought it would be nice to have a photo of Impostor with a local.But the river (on the left) and one of the peddlers were unsure if the dog would bite Impostor or might bark at her!They took so long that the dog looked up. They could have just put Impostor down quickly. So funny!There were a couple of others, and Mummy saw a litter of kitten with their mother. There were also donkeys and horses. I and George would have gone berserk with all these four legged creatures but these dogs were just used to the whole environ.So it was a good thing that it was Impostor who went on the trip.
The whole place is rather pinkish and Impostor blended right in!After Petra they drove to Wadi Rum – the area was vast and there was no one about. So Mummy thought to do the “Titanic” pose with Impostor But the wind blew her over.Oops! Mummy, she really is just two-dimensional.
May’s comment: It was hilarious how the driver and every local we met took “Impostor” so seriously. They did not laugh at her, nor me – instead they asked her name and they helped me with every pose of her!
I miss my pooches but I know they are both having a good time. Every time I get out of bed, I look down expecting some flurry of activity as they both jump off the bed with me. Or getting out of the car, I look back not having anyone to restrain rom just jumping out of the car. 🙂
Jordan, Petra in particular, had long been on the bucket list but with all the uncertainties in the region, one keeps waiting, hoping things would improve. I could keep waiting or I can decide to let fate play it’s course. I chose fate. Not to say I was not nervous to begin with, and then less nervous after I got to know people who live here. They’ve been amazingly helpful in sorting out plans.
We ran through the Main Trail – there’s so much to see but I am here for a week and not enough time. But I’ve been here, seen it and tick it off the list. Tomorrow we’ll be going from Red Sea to Dead Sea and back to Amman. Grateful. Next destination – maybe somewhere that’s further away from the conflict zone. Can’t wait to get home to have Together time with pooches.
