Subject: Re: Egypt and Jordan

We were in Egypt and Jordan in 2000. Petra was one of our priorities. We drove down from Amman one day seeing sights along the way and spent the night there. We went in when it first opened in the morning (rode in on horseback and walked out) and spent most of the day before heading back to Amman in the late afternoon. I would think an overnight trip would be preferable, but any way you can is better than not doing it at all.

We also overnighted in Abu Simbel. I loved being there after the day trip crowds had left, seeing the amazing Sound and Light show in the evening, and getting up to see the site at sunrise. But to do it as a day trip for that much money, I'd probably give it a miss.
