Jordan: sneak through the ancient city of Petra


I will always remember that day in the ancient city of Petra. After walking under the heavy heat in the early morning, there it was, slowly appearing between two rocks and stunning: the Treasury. I got on my toes to try to see it better, moving my head around trying to see more. The sun made it shine like a golden treasure, and its name suddenly made sense.
It is crazy to think that more beauty is hiding in this world wonder, as only about 5% of the city has been excavated.

If you go up to the Monastery, maybe you will see the local who likes to climb on top of it on a daily basis… imagine how magnificent the view must be from up there!

Petra is a UNESCO World Heritage site
