In addition, in June 2020, shortly after the lockdown in Jordan, two of us went to Petra and Little Petra to make two informative videos about these special tourist attractions. Check out our YouTube channel! It’s a nice way to get familiar with these marvellous places directly from your living room, before coming here in person.  And you can let us know if you have questions in the comments section!
