Exploring the Middle East (The cradle of civilization)

Exploring the Middle East (The cradle of civilization)

The Middle East is home to the finest ancient architecture and civilization known to man.

In the Middle East, history is not something you write about in books. Here, it is a story written on the stones that litter the region, from the flagstone of old Roman road to the building blocks of Ancient Egypt, and the temples from Petra to Persepolis. This is where human kind first built cities and learned to write, and it was from here that Judaism, Christianity and Islam all arose.

Here the past meets the present. Aside from ranking among the oldest cities on earth, the ancient-modern metropolises are places to look at with the eyes of an adventurer.

Beyond the city limits, the Middle East is a land of mighty rivers (Nile, which is the longest river out of Africa), even mightier deserts (the Sahara and peerless wadi rum) and green landscapes of exceptional beauty. Exploring these wilderness areas,; from the snow caped summits in turkey to the kaleidoscopic waters of the Red sea, lies the heart of the regions appeal.

First stop will be; PETRA, JORDAN.

Originally known to its inhabitants in as Raqmu or Raqēmō  is a historic and archaeological city in southern Jordan. Petra lies around Jabal Al-Madbah in a basin surrounded by mountains which form the eastern flank of the Arabah valley that runs from the Dead Sea to the Gulf of Aqaba. The area around Petra has been inhabited from as early as 7000 BC, and the Nabataeans might have settled in what would become the capital city of their kingdom, as early as the 4th century BC. However, archaeological work has only discovered evidence of Nabataean presence dating back to the second century BC, by which time Petra had become their capital. The Nabataeans were nomadic Arabs who invested in Petra’s proximity to the trade routes by establishing it as a major regional trading hub.

Petra is actually a fairly easy place to visit and not too expensive. There’s accommodation which, ranges from tented camps to five star resorts, there is a good public transport. It is safe and people are incredibly welcoming.

The ancient Nabataean city of Petra is one of Middle East most cherished attractions. It’s a place like no other.

Some of its glorious sites are;

THE SIQ;

Which happens to be a gorge, entering through the impossibly narrow canyon gives you the feeling that you are on a treasure hunt, and when the sun sets over the honey combed landscape of the tombs, carved facades and pillars all hewn from the rose-red sandstone cliff.

THE TOMB OF NABATAEAN KING ARETAS III.

The treasury is the highlight of Petra but it’s only the really the beginning of your visit.  Also waiting to wow you mind is.

THE COLONNADED STREETS;

Which happens to be the remains, of the Romans invasion. The Romans took control over Petra in 106 AD. Romans that took the archtectuure of Greeks and perfected it. Those Romans where masters at building , and their road still stands today, along with several columns lining the side of the road. Next stop would be the great temple.

THIS NABATAEAN TEMPLE;

These was built in 100 BC and is the largest freestanding building in Petra. Our next stop will be The Monastery (Al-deir). The hike to the monastery is over 900 steps and for a solid 20 minutes or more. Along the way you pass numerous stalls, worked by women, selling souvenir and jewelers. But if you are not a fan of hiking donkeys are available for a token.

Petra also brings to you one of the holiest places in the world,

THE TOMB OF AARON

Aaron, Moses ‘brother. To get there can be equated to the stress of pilgrimage. The highest point in the area gives hikers a view of Jordan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Israel.

Before you bid Farwell to Petra, make sure you see Petra by night. It occurs three nights a week (Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday at 20:30) the Siq which happens to be a gorge are lit with 1500 candles. This different view of Petra and it’s described as magical.

The best time to visit Petra is March to May and September to November. As temperature aren’t so high and the crowds are smaller. The winter can be bitterly cold night and chilly during the day. During summer the months can be unbearably hot, because it’s a desert nation.

Do not forget to bring back the most prized treasure of Jordan the Dead Sea salt. Petra should be on your bucket list.

It is no doubt the pandemic is a hard one especially on lovers of adventures and vacations. However, as the lockdown gradually eases off and many health team try to find a cure to COVID-19, it is time to sketch your bucket list of where to travel especially locally once things get better.

We have decided to help you with a travel- friendly list especially if you currently reside in West Africa, is stucked there (because of the ban on international flights) or will be visiting West Africa. Here goes the list.

Countries you can travel to from West Africa includes:

GHANA

Known for its colourful cultural wears and music and ranked Africa most peaceful country, Ghana is indeed a nice place to visit and enjoy a vacation in, especially in it’s capital, Accra.

Ghana weather is on the hot side. It can also get pretty hot, reaching about 30°C or 86°F, on most days. The heat is tempered by the cool breezes blowing in from the Atlantic Ocean.

They speak English as an unifying language. Two of the most widespread native languages are the Twi language of the Ashanti people – which is spoken in the southern and central regions – and the Dagbani language of the Dagomba people – more commonly spoken by people in areas to the north.

Ghanian food is a mix of indigenous flavours and outside influences – like European and Indian. You will find tomato-based stews with complex flavours throughout Ghana. The stews usually contain a type of marine or freshwater fish and are eaten with a dough, which is used to scoop up the fish and soak up the fragrant sauce. The dough – sometimes called fufu or akple – is made from any type of starch including cassava, plantain, yam, maize, millet, sorghum, potatoes or cocoyams. Another staple of Ghanaian cuisine is jollof rice: a one-pot rice dish that includes a variety of Ghanaian spices with tomatoes and chili. Peanuts are often used to flavour stews and garnish dishes. You will be sure to find taro leaves and okra in many of their dishes.

Considering trying Ghana for a vacation after the pandemic? Yes! Though ensure you have yourself a Kente cloth (a fabric worn by Ashanti royalty) while leaving. Also remember to change your money to cedi since this is the currency used in Ghana.

 

SOUTH AFRICA:

Wow! Now, this country, also known as “Rainbow Nation”, is known worldwide for their skills in sports including rugby, cricket, golf and soccer. They have about twelve tourist centres you don’t want to miss out either. You should also note that South Africa is the 24th-largest country in the world.

South Africa has a generally temperate climate being surrounded by the Atlantic and Indian Oceans on three sides and is home to the oldest meteor scar in the world – the Vredefort Dome in a town called Parys. It is known for the winds.

At least thirty-five languages indigenous to South Africa are spoken in the Republic, ten of which are official languages of South Africa: Ndebele, Northern Sotho, Sotho, Swati, Tsonga, Tswana, Venḓa, Xhosa, Zulu and Afrikaans.The most common language spoken as a first language by South Africans is Zulu (23 percent), followed by Xhosa (16 percent), and Afrikaans (14 percent). English is the fourth most common first language in the country (9.6%), but is understood in most urban areas and is the dominant language in government and the media. So be sure to keep your English language skills handy.

Don’t leave South Africa without eating their special meals: biltong & droewors, boerewors, malva pudding, chakalaka & pap, braai/shisa nyama, bunny chow, bobotie and melktert. South Africans enjoy not only beef, but mutton, goat, chicken and other meats as a centerpiece of a meal incase you are meatatarian. On weekends, many South African families have a “braai,” and the meal usually consists of “pap and vleis”, which is maize meal and grilled meat.

ETHIOPIA

Ethiopia is a landlocked country on the Horn of Africa, in the east of the continent. It is bordered by Djibouti, Eritrea, Kenya, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, and Somaliland (Somalia).

However, Amharic is the “working language” in Ethiopia together with Oromo, which is one of the two most widely spoken languages in the country though English is the most widely spoken foreign language.

Ethiopian cuisine (Amharic: የኢትዮጵያ ምግብ) characteristically consists of vegetable and often very spicy meat dishes. A typical dish consists of injera accompanied by a spicy stew, which frequently includes beef, lamb, vegetables and various types of legumes, such as lentils which are not only healthy and nutritious, but is also a great way to expose children (if you are visiting with your kids) to new flavors and teach them about other parts of the world at the same time.

Be sure to change your money to Ethopian Birr (ETB) in any Ethiopian bank while visiting. It is a plus to know their currency is known to be very strong.

In Morocco there are two official languages, Arabic and Amazigh, which are spoken in the streets and villages of Morocco.

However, 18.3 % of Moroccans speak English -English is the second most spoken foreign language in Morocco, according to the most recent data disclosed by High Commission for Planning.

 

Tip:

You can say “As-salaam Alaykum” (literally) “Peace be with you” as a form of greeting to a Moroccan, interchangeable for “hello”  and “Walaykum As-salaam” is the response. Meanwhile, “Sbah l’kheir” means “good morning”.

The main Moroccan dish most people are familiar with is couscous. Beef is the most commonly eaten red meat in Morocco, usually eaten in a tagine with a wide selection of vegetables. Chicken is also very commonly used in tagines or roasted. They also use additional ingredients such as plums, boiled eggs, and lemon.

The best currency to use in Morocco is Dirham, denoted as MAD or Dhs. It’s preferable when you go out pay in Dirham currency. The Moroccan currency is the Dirham. £1 sterling is approximately 13 Morrocan Dirhams.
