My four year old is teaching me something new every day. At his preschool they are learning about the great monuments of the world. So when he got home today I asked him if he made anything (they do a lot of arts and crafts). Yes, he said, I made Petrol!! Petrol? I asked, how do you make Petrol? He said it is made out of pink sandstones and the Gordon people didn't know it was there for a long time. Oh, I said, you mean the people from Jordon didn't know Petra was there for a long time. Yes, he said, and here is my Petrol. He handed me a lump of grey play-do mixed with sand. I wish petrol was really that easy to come across!
