Imagine your own personal tour of one of the Smithsonian's "23 Places to Visit Before You Die"! Petra, Jordon is exactly that! Capable traveler Patricia L. Lawrence narrates her experience of exploring the city as she navigates with her guide Mohammad Mofal. Lawrence's performance is relatable and helpful. Her friendly tone is perfect for anyone looking for an accessible companion while traveling. Listen as the legendary capital of the Nabateans, the "rose red city half as old as time" comes to life!
Petra is the legacy of the Nabateaeans, an industrious Arab people who settled in south Jordan more than 2,600 years ago, dominating the trade routes of ancient Arabia. With our guide, Mohammad Mofal, we walk through the outer Siq, a steep sided gorge. Its early in the morning, we are on our way to the Treasury.
