Oct 21 - In the afternoon, we took the bus to Little Petra. Unlike the main site, which is mostly tombs, this area shows the remains of actual living quarters. It is smaller in scale, and so much easier to comprehend. It is also not as heavily traveled. Upon entering, again through a narrow passage, I spotted a Beduin woman spinning. I have seen a lot of goats and sheep, along with the camels, donkeys and horses. She appeared to be spinning the black goat fiber. It was fairly coarse. Probably a worsted weight.
Of course you have to have at least one monumental ediface.
Before dinner, several of us went up to the roof top terrace for a drink and to try the Hubble Bubble, or waterpipe. It was very smooth. Our tobacco was flavored with mint.
For dinner we went to the Petra Kitchen, where we prepared our own meal (mostly, there were a few things that they did). I made pastries - rolling out dough and dropping spoonfulls of filling seemed a lot easier than chopping vegetables. After dinner we all received the recipes for the meal that we had just prepared. It was a lot of fun, but it made for a late night.
