Photography Friday: J is for ‘Jordan’

Just a few buses, a boat and a few more buses from Sharm el Sheikh and you’ll arrive in Jordan, in this case, Petra.

Petra is one of the new 7 wonders of the world. It is an incredible city carved into the mountains (similar to Cappadocia in Turkey actually). Today it’s a World Heritage Site for thousands of tourists to see and yes, I had to be a tourist for a day and visit it since I was so close (sort of).
