Final Entry

At the end of our trip, the crew reassembled and traveled to Jordan. It was a wonderful and relaxing way to wind down after the two month seminar and internship. The first night we stayed at the coolest resort Marriott I had ever seen before and were able to watch the sunset over the Dead Sea. Then we traveled to Petra and saw the once-lost ancient Bedouin city. The highlight for me was seeing the "Treasury" where part of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade was filmed. I mean, to think that we were walking in the very same path that Harrison Ford once traversed. It was profound. And then, our last day was spent in Wadi Rum. An expansive and beautiful part of Jordan that once was home to Laurence of Arabia and his magical band of misfits. After Wadi Rum, we spent one final night together and said our goodbyes as people parted ways. It was a fantastic experience
