As we drove I noticed how the landscape changed from mountains around Jerash and Amman to totally flat desert-like landscapes and back to mountains again.
When we arrived in Petra we drove through the area with the hostels and most of the hotels, and ended at a hotel (the Petra moon) only five minutes walk from the Petra entrance.
After settling in we walked to the main street that runs from the Petra entrance up to the modern city, the street is very touristy and has plenty of souvenir shops and small restaurants, so we picked a random restaurant and had something to eat before moving on to a hotel nearby that had a bar, as we were the only guests in the bar we only had two rounds and then bought a lot of beers and brought them with us to our hotel where we were allowed to sit in the lobby.
