The treasury

Drove for a few minutes and arrived at the ancient city of Petra which was found more than 2000 years ago. Most of us got a short horse ride to the entry of the gorge. The ride was bumpy and I didn't like it. We walked through the gorge while Rabbi stopped every few metres to lecture us. Most of his information was going in one ear and out the other. Once we got to the end of the gorge we came to the treasury, it looked just the same as in all the travel brochures. There wasn't much of the building on the inside. Walking around we saw many tombs and temples all carved into rocks.
