Petra. The Nabatean kingdom and one of the New7Wonders. After staying in a cave with a family of one of the local Bedouin tribes, I made my way up to the monastery just after breakfast. After a 45 minute hike I arrived at the top, being the first one to arrive. Besides being astounding on its own, the atmosphere just after sunrise is astounding. Not to mention how it must have felt when the city was home to 20.000 people and one of the most important trading routes between Mesopotamia and the Arab world. The Nabateans invited Greek architects to create the blueprints for these amazing buildings carved right into the rose colored stone. Petra became an UNESCO world heritage site in 1985.
