We are in Amman, in a pleasantish backpackers hostel with teeny tiny kittens. Memo to self, check O's backpack tomorrow. This morning we woke up in the rather crumbling grandeur of the Hotel Palmyra in Baalbeck, two of only six guests (of whom one was six). Fantastic place, where anyone who was anyone from the late 19th to mid 20th century stayed. That is in Lebanon, since when we have been through Syria to reach here. Petra tomorrow. All go round here.

We have only made it this far through the extraordinary kindness of a wide cast of people who have helped us out when we were befuddled. Chief among them ItinerantSphinx in Beirut, but also several people whose only mistake was to find themselves in a shared taxi with us. Always be nice to tourists. It may be you someday.
