GFP goes to PETRA!
Why were there no blogs yesterday? Because we went to Petra!
What is Petra?
Petra is one of the most famous archaeological sites in the world. What has now become one of the seven ancient wonders of the world, was once the capital city of the Nabateans Arabs who settled there over 2000 years ago. This city, which was carved into the mountains by the Nabateans, “was an important junction for the silk, spice and other trade routes that linked China, India and southern Arabia with Egypt, Syria, Greece and Rome.” (Please see the Jordan Tourism Board website for further information on Petra).
In addition to seeing one of the most famous tourist sites in the world, our trip to Petra granted our Delegates the opportunity to deepen their bonds with each other, and with our Generations For Peace staff – with whom they will be working closely post-Amman Camp. Enhanced communication skills, cooperation skills and social skills are assets for all members of the Generations For Peace community.
