Petra, the city on the stone wall

Ancient site which is described as "an antique city of red roses"

Travel approximately 3.5 hours from Amman, quite tiring, but worth it to get here. Hot sunshine sting my skin, only a few trees, no rocks and dusty areas along the way.

Spectacular long history, the ancient Romans and complexity of irrigation systems, reliefs carved on the cliff surface rocks, and there are stunning mountain pass.

I can only imagine a time, long ago. Incredible and fascinating.
