I spent a whole day visiting Petra, the old city of Nabataeans in Jordan, and I got well why it is one of the Seven Wonders of the world. I can’t imagine the incredible feelings of the explorer who discovered it on 1812. But I remember well my sensations, when I smoked the hookah in front of the Monastery, waiting for the red-gold light at sunset. The Jordan friend who rent the shisha gently refused my money. ‘You are my guest’ – told me – and much probably he enjoyed the moment as well, sitting with me in front of this wonderful monument. While a slight breeze refreshed us and the shadows lengthening on the ground.
Crossing Israel – my pictures of Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Negev, Dead Sea, Masada and Galilee. Along the Jordan River, looking for the roots of Humanity. From the Holy City of Jerusalem to the modern lifestyle in Tel Aviv, a photographic trip like a bridge beetween the past to the present. Give a sneak peek at NEOS Travel Journalists Society blog.
