I'll be honest, the primary reason I went to Jordan was to see Petra. But rather than fly in and out, I decided to spend a week exploring the country. One day I went to the ancient city of Jerash. It was beautiful - well preserved with the avenues still intact. And what was so great was there were very few tourists (unlike Ephesus in Turkey). I hired a guide at the entrance and learned the rich history and imagined a time from a long time ago.
This picture is of the Temple Diana. The columns actually ever so slightly sway in the wind but have survived all these centuries.
