On route to Aqaba - southern Jordan



How beautiful is this valley?



From the Ras an Naqab to the Wadi al Yutum;



an ancient land that supported civilisations



who settled on its once verdant plains and valleys until the trees were gone and the streams dried up and man moved to pastures green. Except that is, for those whose affinity with the land was stronger still, and remained free to roam in this land of peace and solitude. J Posted by Picasa

Thanks Huttonian - as T said, we need to be reminded that we live in a beautiful world - when war is not being waged. J
