To get the first glimpse of Petra from the back of a horse or a camel, just like all the other travellers through the ages did. "It seems no work of Man's creative hand, by labour wrought as wavering fancy planned; But from the rock as if by magic grown, eternal, silent, beautiful, alone! - John William Burgon.

Petra, Jordan. I remember spending many more hours than I had intended wandering around this ancient lost city. It felt powerful and somehow magical.

Established possibly as early as 312 BC as the capital city of the Nabataeans, it is a symbol of Jordan, as well as its most visited tourist attraction. UNESCO has described it as "one of the most precious cultural properties of man's cultural heritage". Petra was chosen by the Smithsonian Magazine as one of the "28 Places to See Before You Die".

Petra is one of the most exotic places. We got there by traveling through Eilat, Israel. Then, walking and weaving through barbed wire and a no man's land of sand between Israel and Jordan. Then a waving friendly van driver drove us there. The Turkish bath story at Petra is another story altogether.

Felt fortunate to go with a group of friends three years ago to Jordan and Israel. I had always wanted to go to Petra (southern Jordan)...and had been looking at a calendar on my wall for some time of it!
