Tomorrow I will leave Showbak for the Faynan valley. One thing I’m really going to miss are the dinners. There’s a local family my colleague is friends with who run a camp for tourists, and who will cook dinner for visiting archaeologists for a small fee. The food is fresh, local, and cooked by an expert. I ate way more than what I posted below, but I was so busy eating it I forgot to take pictures. Who has the time?
If you’re ever in Jordan, stop in Showbak, see the crusader castle, Montreal, and spend the night at Jaya Camp, which has an incredible view of the castle. Did I mention the castle is lit up at night?
