So intriguing was the visit to Petra, Jordan, with the colors and textures of the rock, not to mention a complex and richly ornamented city carved into it. But the presence of Bedouins, so unfamiliar to this westerner, was an added fascination for me. It certainly brings this “silk road” destination to life.
