It's in Jordan. Inhabited since prehistoric times, this Nabataean carava-city, situated berween the Red Sea and the Dead Sea, was an important crossroads between Arabia, Egypt and Syria-Phoenicia. Petra is half-built, half-carved into the rock, and is surrounded by mountains riddled with passages and gorges. It is one of the world's most famous archaeological sites, where ancient Eastern traditions blend with Hellenistic architecture
I heard you went to Petra last summer

One of the most compassionate and caring people you'll ever meet, a Petra is one of those people you feel fortunate to know in your lifetime. They are adventurous and energetic, courageous, enthusiastic, confident and extremely quick-witted.
Many people will be drawn to her, but she will let only a few become really close. If you are one of those fortunate few who be prepared to talk about evil cats, grumpy owls, and the occasional pigeon that your Petra will be nursing back to health.
Petra: I'm naming my evil owl either Izzy or Grumpy!
Me: ok...

Nice, charismatic, guy with cute dimples and an adorable butt. Someone you notice the second you walk into a room. Full of laughter and confidence, loves all things masculine, sports related, and blond bimbos.
Damn! That guy is such a Petras, everyone loves him.
