Peace Out, Petra
Petra is an ancient city that's tucked away in a valley - lost for several centuries, it was found in 1812 and excavated. Archeologists estimate that 80% of the city is still buried.
The ampatheater is carved directly into the mountain
"Jordan has a strange, haunting beauty and a sense of timelessness. Dotted with the ruins of empires once great, it is the last resort of yesterday in the world of tomorrow."
King Hussein I
The hike to get up here was more akin to rock climbing, but it was so worth it
