Where I stayed
The process to get out of Egypt was nearly as crazy as the event to get in, none the less we persevered and got onto the 3:00pm boat at 5:00pm. Two hours on the ferry meant we landed after dark.
Arriving in Jordan was a pleasure, the shorty got X-rayed and passed the inspection, the process was quick and only cost us $50 Dinar (about $ 80USD). The strangest thing is the Jordan Dinar is stronger than the US dollar!
We turned right out of the port and headed to the Bedouin Beach Camp… sounds nice doesn’t it.. We found it easily and discovered that it is called the Bedouin Camp because Bedouins camp there. (the Bedouins are a tribe of Jordan). The original campers, they are semi nomadic people living in very dodgy looking tents throughout the desert. They seem friendly enough although we can’t communicate at all but they leave us alone which is the main thing.
