City in RockStreaming Video - 2006
Setting out from the ancient Red Sea port of Aqaba, this program travels to Petra, a pivotal trading center that sat astride the caravan route from Arabia to points north. An arid place of monumental structures carved into the colorful sandstone mountains, the Nabatean capital is also the site of innovative storm water management and water conservation systems. A low-altitude flight over the Wadi Rum, a visit to an ornate cave building, and a virtual walk through the temple of the god Dusura highlight this archaeological field trip to a place that is part natural wonder, part architectural jewel.
