Jordanian desert and reception party
Jordan Government and Police seem to be playing political delaying games- after all drivers had to hand over their passports until we leave Jordan for Egypt.
Fine hospitality in Amman. Hotel accommodation with great food etc. Lots of press coverage and public rallies today.
Real desert with proper sand dunes! Driving south to Akaba. 270km to go. Hot, hot, hot. Army escort. Big guns. Best behaviour. Just stopped on the road to Aqaba for a wonderful desert reception thrown by the tribal heads of Karak.
