By the time we finished sipping tea in a Bedouin tent, it was pouring with rain and thundering so it was straight back to the bus. It is an amazing place.
The Wadi Rum is a good 4-hour drive from Amman and is on a better road than Jerash. On entry to the Wadi Rum, you and the sandstone mountains on one side and the other was granite being the Aqaba mountains.
Along the road, we saw a range of farming types being olive, solar panels, wind farms and again the occasional shepherd and small village making their living.
