Let’s go to “World New 7 Wonder” Petra

At the end of the Global Youth Priorities GYP  project, the whole team went to discover the ancient Nabatean city of Petra (Arabic: البترا, Al-Batrā; Ancient Greek: Πέτρα), or Raqmu as it was originally known by the native Nabateans. Petra, made famous by the Indiana Jones films and by the boost in tourism following its nomination as one of the ‘new 7 wonders’ of the world, is a renowned archeological and history site. Located in Ma’an, a governorate in southern Jordan, the site attracts thousands of tourists every year— ranging from history enthusiasts and researchers to adventure-seekers and holiday-goers, the site never disappoints. Steeped in history and breathtaking views and landscapes, Petra— dubbed the ‘rose city’ because of the pinky hue— did not disappoint the GYP team, including its Jordanian members who never hesitate to return. Promoting Jordanian culture by wearing the  Shmag (traditional Jordanian head scarf) and carrying the Jordanian flag, the trip was a great cultural exchange and team building opportunity.
