  • I was amazed

    Petra is an ancient city carved in the rocks in Jordan. The first time I went there I was amazed by the great work of normal human beings who have carved a whole city in the mountains many centuries ago. It amazed me because I saw that we, as humans, could create something so magnificent and show it to the world. Moreover, Petra was recently named as one of the 7 new wonders of the world.
