Petra has certainly been high on my list of places to see, and it did not disappoint. The hostel I stayed at in Wadi Musi played Indiana Jones every night on the tele, so I was primed to walk through the canyon on the approach to the Treasury. But the most magical time was experiencing Petra at night under candles and stars and bedouin music. My favorite place was the Monestry, which is at the farthest point in Petra. The size and setting are awe inspiring.
