Today was a much needed recovery day, the first in 8 days and the last one of the trip. Only 4 more hiking days! It was also a foot recovery day. Yesterday I was so tired of emptying sand from my shoes I said the heck with it and hiked with my shoes full of sand. That raised havoc with my feet. I don’t think I developed any blisters but I felt a bunch of hot spots.
I got up early and watched the sunrise in Wadi Rum with some other tourists. It was beautiful but I see them everyday. I did get some pictures with me in them, something I can rarely do since I’m usually alone.
Talking with other tourists was a pleasant change. We sat in a big open tent and shared our experiences. The conversation, as usual, drifted to politics with Trump as the main topic. Anyone that knows anything about him doesn’t like him.
I also got 100% caught up on my journaling with all of them in my smartphone ready to send to Nancy when I can find Wi-Fi. It looks like that will be in Aqaba at the very end of my hike.
