But nevertheless, the trip to Petra was "inolvidable" (unforgettable) as we say in Spanish. The ruins were so much more than anyone makes them out to be. I feel like a horrible person for not knowing more about it before I left. But it is definitely a must see before you die. Entire buildings carved into the sides of sandstone cliffs. If that's not breathtaking I don't know what is. Well maybe I do. Could it be the fact that its in the middle of a desert? Either way, it's spectacular and one of the most intriguing places that I have ever been.
The week has been full of exams and tests. There was a small city-wide alert the other day. (My first one) apparently there was a bomb threat in the center of town and no one was allowed to leave the university. Creepy. In the end it turned out to be nothing more than a good reason to stay home for the evening.
Anyways, my brain is fried. I'm going to bed.
