Photos: My Scholarship entry - A 'place' I have visited

Roses and the Bedouin Mafia

JORDAN | Sun, 13 Apr 2008 | By sstolper | Views [1953] | Comments [2]

I think I will add both Petra and Wadi Rum to the short list of Wonders of the World that I've seen. Of course Petra already had official status as such in the latest vote on such Wonders. But it's every bit as incredible as one might think. When a fellow ... Read more >
