Petra in Jordan

Jordan - an ancient land, echoing with civilizations that have shaped the course of world history.

 Such a treat to be in Petra again.  With just a sliver more time than last year, Bob and I decided we were going to make haste and see as much of this spectacular site as we could.  Habitation here was around 6 BC by the Nabateans. Completely hidden in the canyons of Edom, it was unknown to the modern world until the early 1800s.  The dry climate of the desert has beautifully preserved the intricate carvings.
