We Made It

We made it to the West Bank! Today was an action packed day with waking up early to go to the Petra, which we got some great photos that Josh will post later. On our exit from Petra was a little challenging because a member of the Royal family was in the city and therefore the entire city roads were locked down and our chauffeur couldn’t reach us. We eventually figured it all out but were delayed about 2 hours. We drove on the back roads of Jordan along the Dead Sea and although the view was impeccable the roads were a bit intimidating. We got to the Jordan/Israel border and had to be separated for a short period of time. I eventually got through the border with general ease but the three American students with me were detained and questioned – who would have thought. I waited for them for about 2 hours and I’m sure they will have plenty to blog about tomorrow. Just wanted to let everyone know we are in Ramallah, safe and sound, and starting rotations in Ramallah Hospital tomorrow at 9 am. More details from the other students to come shortly.

    Had trouble with my home computer over the weekend so this is the first I’ve checked to be sure you 4 are all in one piece and “taking nourishment”. Sounds like you’ve already both interesting and great experiences. I hope there’s a photo of the camel ride and sun burns as well as the impressive views and ruins. I’m looking forward to seeing what comes next! Penny
