Trip Report Petra: A walk through the old city. Slideshow version

Jump to last reply

I was recently on a message thread about Petra, and I finally finished uploading
some pictures of the walk through Petra in early November '09.

(We did not go up to the monastery, as we had only one day and we
spent 7-8 hours walking slowly anyway, stopping for photos and to enjoy it all. But
I encourage people to take two days and to walk up to the scenic views and
gorgeous higher sites.)

This isn't a gallery of pictures as pure quality-photographs though.
(That will become obvious.)

It's a photo-log or travelog of what the walk to and through the old city
is like, for some who have wondered on some of the travel forums.
Both of us are older, so people can see that this is not an over-arduous
walk, though many take a horse&carriage back up.

So, when/if you'd like to see this without having to go through the
shots one by one or even have to choose 1 to 3 shots from so many
(since I replicated the entire walk !),

you can choose to see this Slideshow instead. But ...
* FIRST, PC users should press F11 * (it toggles on and off the
larger-size feature for pics... Press it again after you're finished.))

This gives the larger, non-distorted 800 x 600 pics.
It still downsizes the vertical pictures to fit the screen though.

Then go to
http://bit.ly/petraslideshow

And just sit numbly through my never-ending shots of that day.

( The 3 second-per-slide timing is not bad because it gives some
time to speed-read my sometimes explanatory captions for the pics.)

Normally, I'd ask people to go to
- http://bit.ly/petraphotos

That shows an introduction with links to more information about Petra if
the reader's interested.

But even I don't want people to have to choose from as many photos
as I show there for that day. The pictures don't work alone anyway, only as part
of a 'tour' of the old city sights.

Hope some of you enjoy this :-)
