Kitties in Syria & Jordan

Kitty my SMS met at Petra, Jordan that lives on top of the mountain

Petra - The Treasury

When SMS came home, she tossed all her stuff around the living room and dining room, so naturally I checked out everything that was tossed. Smelly clothes, souvenirs she bought and bits of paper - everywhere!
My SMS was telling me that she missed me heaps on her travels! She noted that there were loads of cats and not that many dogs in Syria, however they must have all gone down south to Jordan as there were heaps of them there. 
She ended up chatting to a kitty in Palmyra near the ruins who said "Welcome to Syria" which was apparently a very common saying that was heard all over Syria - very friendly people. There was another kitty in Petra, Jordan that lived with a local Bedouin person up on the top of the mountain. She said to my SMS that she had the best views and could see all the way out to the Saudi desert.

This morning I jumped up on my SMS's bed at 7am (she went to bed at 6am!) HA HA HA!

Wow, that treasury building looks like it was carved right out of the rock! Very impressive.

Hello Charlotte!!

SMS went to bed at 6am and you woke her up at 7?!? Good job! :D

We love to see the photos but they are not displayed now. We'll be back a little later to check them out!

Great pictures! I am so sorry - I forgot all about the contest - and then the maid was gone all day - and then I heard about Caesar having gone to the bridge. And now we are just very sad over here...

G'day Charlotte, We had to come and say that your SMS brought back some great photos of working kitties from her holiday. Mum really loved the photo of the Treasury in Petra - she's never been there but has always found pictures of the city fascinating. She thinks it was an amazing feat to carve some of the buildings in the city out of the mountains.

PS Just humour Mum, she's a bit of a geek...
