Fashion goes out the window when you’re walking near precious artifacts

So proud of Emerson! As the trip has progressed, she has gotten really good at “going with the flow.” I personally think if you can live like that as often as possible- life is easier.
The shoe coverings were not only unattractive, but they made our feet sweat like crazy. Yuck!
Funny shoe story from Petra, Jordan: we were looking at the “monastery” – this amazing carved cathedral type structure in the desert. Some guy that resembled Jonny Depp with the scarf, eyeliner, black outfit (the whole bit) was jumping around rock formations like crazy. Very impressive! As I was admiring his Bedouin machismo, I caught a glimpse of his footgear. He was wearing blindingly white, 3 inch thick, orthopedic looking fitness shoes. Oh man! He totally ruined my image of a local Jordanian riding around all sexy on a horse. I wanted to tell him to lose the shoes so he could pull in the ladies- but I figure he was doing just fine without any advice from me. When we were leaving, some Western women were having their photos taken with him- I noticed he stood behind them -possibly to hide his platforms. Too funny.
