Petra in Jordan

Petra

 

Petra is a historical and archaeological city in the southern Jordan.  Our main reason for visiting Jordan after Egypt was to experience Petra.  It was established in 312 BC.  You need to walk the desert path down a few miles to the rock cliff city below.  You can take a donkey if need be but you will miss all the details along the route if you do.  Just take your time.  It is a photographer’s dream!
