One of the Nabatean temples that people believe has Egyptian influence
Me in front of the Siq (the narrow passageway that brings you dramatically into the ruins of Petra)
A horse and carriage that brings people through Petra (this photo was taken by my mom)
My dad and sister walking through the Siq
Sunlight shining through the rock walls of the Siq
More Petra pictures coming up in part 2!
