Petra!!



A place I would really like to see. Hopefully before madmen blow up the middle east. I don't really think the grail knight is there, but it's fun to imagine it, eh?

Sigh. I don't often wish that I was born in an earlier time, except for this: I would love to have been alive a hundred years ago so that I could travel the world's great deserts. The Gobi, the Empty Quarter, the Middle East, the Sahara, the Great Australian Desert, all the way around the world on sand and rock and scrub. How beautiful that would be!

I haven't been around much all week so I just saw this post. Yes, Petra is definitely worth the trip, I saw it in 2001(prior to 9/11). The first glimpse, when you come out of the narrow canyon in the photo, and see the treasury building in front of you...just awesome!
