Petra

One of the seven wonders of the world?

Who knew?  Well some of you probably did, but I sure didn’t.  It turns out that the original seven wonders was limited to those sites known in ancient Greece.  Petra didn’t make that list.  It did, however, make it for The “New” Seven Wonders of the World List compiled in 2007.  I don’t know or really care if it’s in the top seven or not, but I sure can testify that it’s wondrous.  These pictures don’t even begin to do justice to what we saw.
