We enjoyed the company of our friend, Barbara, at our final breakfast at the Kempinski. Today we go from a group of seven to two.

Kempinski Hotel walnut danish pastry, I will miss you.


Tarek met us in the lobby at 9:30 AM and we were escorted to the airport for our flight to Amman, Jordan. We were extremely grateful to be led like children through the airport. Check-in lines were lengthy, but Mohammed filled out all our paperwork and took us through to the final security check.

We decided to extend our trip with A+R because who knows if we will ever return to this part of the world...and Petra calls!

Our flight to Amman lasted about 90 minutes, and we landed around 3:30 PM.

This view from the airplane shows that Jordan has a lot of desert.


Believe it or not, it took us the same amount of time to get from the airport to our hotel as it did to fly to Jordan! There was a ridiculous amount of traffic, which our driver said is atypical for the area. One good thing is that you do not have to endure the incessant horn honking or witness the death-defying lane maneuvers that you would encounter in Egypt.

We checked into the W hotel at about 5:45 PM. Our room is on the 26th floor.


This is quite the trendy place. There was a magazine photo shoot going on while we were enjoying this delicious meal of mezzes.


A few other hotel photos before we say good night.


PS: Jordan has changed their daylight saving time to start at the end of February, instead of March, so we are back to a seven hour time difference from home.
