I have a deep love for historical monuments and natural sites that bear witness to the past. If my words could save a monument or a natural site, it would be difficult to choose just one. However, if I had to choose, I would pick the ancient city of Petra in Jordan.
This city, carved entirely out of pink sandstone cliffs, is an awe-inspiring sight to behold. The city was once a bustling center of trade and commerce along the Silk Road, and its architecture and engineering feats are a testament to the ingenuity and creativity of its people. However, over time, the city has fallen into disrepair and is at risk of being lost forever.
If my words could save this magnificent city, I would write about its rich history, its stunning beauty, and the urgent need to preserve it for future generations to enjoy. I would call on governments, NGOs, and individuals to come together to protect this priceless piece of human history and ensure that it remains a source of wonder and inspiration for centuries to come.

I must say, I didn’t know about Petra… But after watching a couple of videos on YouTube, I totally get your enthusiasm about the ancient city! Wow, what a historic gem!
We can’t all be history super heroes, but I encourage you to at least keep spreading your love for this precious place. I sure am glad you made me discover it! Who knows? you might write the words that will make a difference 😉
You might think ”What if I don’t?” Well, you’ll have made that many more people aware of this amazing place 🙂 And to me… That’s a lot!
There are so many. They are all a part of our history and who we are, good or bad.

I agree Jeanne, it is hard to pick only one 🙂 World history is so rich… Difficult to focus on just one place 😉
