I can't even begin to describe how beautiful Petra (aptly named the "Rose City") is so once again I will let my pictures tell the story...
|Near the entrance of Petra - the holes are entrances to caves that the Bedouins lived in.|
|Entrace to the siq which leads to the Treasury|
|You can ride a horse or take a buggy in Petra - or use shank's pony. (your feet!)|
|Isn't it amazing? The Treasury!|
|Not sure if this picture was meant to turn out this way - at first was upset but now it's kind of cool...|
|A refreshing glass of hot fresh mint tea. A "must" in Petra!|
|beautiful floor tiles|
|about as close to the edge as I dared to go! The Petra complex is HUGE - you would need days to see it all.|
|lots of camels around!|
|and stray dogs and donkeys....|
|saying goodbye to the Treasury.|
|they were going at quite the clip!|
Petra was one of the definite highlights of my trip to the Middle East. Would I go back? Never say never...
