Having visited the Nubian archeological sites in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia back in 1989, the time had now come to visit the other Nubian site in the Jordan - Petra back in1998. In connection to a business trip to Amman, I made the drive down to Petra in the south of Jordan through the dessert. Petra is as magnificent as is Madain Saleh in Saudi Arabia. There are a lot more tourist however coming to Petra compared with Madain Saleh. The pictures are scanned and of a lower quality.
