Day 8 - Rest and Recreation.

Firstly today - here is a group photo of this year's team at the stationary carriages on the Hijaz railway at Bir Shedia.

Today was our first rest day. After many days of hard work in the desert, the team took the opportunity to spend some time visiting local places of interest. 21 of us went into Petra, some for the first time and others coming back for a repeat visit. Others went off to view some Copper mines about an hour and a half's drive away, whilst some of the core team visited Mudawwara. Pictures speak louder than words on today's blog, so here is a selection of images taken at various places. More will be added later.
