It was an adventure day. Having just descended over 9000 feet in a hot air balloon to set foot back on solid ground, I was ready for more. It wasn’t long until I was loaded into a big SUV and driven off in the direction of Wadi Rum village, the entrance into the Wadi Rum desert, the battlefield of T.S. Lawrence.
As we pulled in to the village, dotted with the shells of homes, kids came running from every direction. I hopped out of the truck and went to a local shop to get some falafel. On my way, I ran into this foursome of smiling bubbly little girls. It didn’t take long to make friends and eventually the gatekeepers let me pass.
