Had a really good closing Eucharist in Jerusalem before the group split with two bishops and the blue coach returning to Heathrow and the rest of us - Diocesan bishop, archdeacon and communications director going with the green coach to Jordan. We crossed over and have stayed near Petra for two nights. Today we all walked own into the site and had a great day exploring it all. Fantastic buildings and great weather too. Some of us entered up 800 steps to view the Monastery above the site. Well worth the climb with a freshly squeezed orange juice at the end. Tomorrow we make for Mount Nebo. It's been a good few days. The pilgrimage has ended with clerical shirts now in the bottom of the suitcase, but we continue to journey together until we touch down at Heathrow on Saturday.
