Have you ever gone somewhere and had such high expectations that you were disappointed when you actually saw it? Petra is no such place! I had high expectations, and they were surpassed and smashed every step of the way (and believe me, we took a lot of steps). I don't think I've ever been so exhausted in my entire life.
I'll tell you more later, but suffice to say Petra is absolutely spectacular. No wonder they filmed part of Indiana Jones here--amazing!
More later...along with photos!
