Holy, Holy, Holy

I have arrived here in the Holy Land, and instead of writing once when I get back, when I don't have words for the experience, I shall write once now, while I still don't have any words. I'm not sure how many more opportunities I'll have for internet access, so a small computer in the corner of a Jordanian hotel sounds perfect to me.

We are, as noted, in Jordan, and we will cross over the border into the West Bank in a few days. The schedule is absolutely packed, which works well with my lingering jet lag. Tomorrow we ride camels across the desert and explore Petra, where the famous ruins into the side of a massive cliff were made even more famous in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.

This is such a phenomenal place, and I will never understand or comprehend it fully, but I will continue to try.

So much of this place reminds me of Africa - so beautiful, so dry, so poor. It is good to be here. I am blessed for the opportunity.

Holy Land, Round 1. Completed.
