Reports of my travels along with some pictures

Dec 17, 2006

(Associated Images: 01Treaury, Petra; 02 Ancient Mosaic Map of Middle East, Madaba; 03 Roman Forum, Jerash; 04 Crusader Fort, Kerak ; 05 Cross, Mt. Nebo)

Since our group in Jordan consisted only of two of us, we were able to interact with our driver/tour director. A Christian in a Muslim-majority country, he told us some difficulties he encounters in interacting with his Muslim friends. In love with a woman in Holland, he had difficulty making up his mind to marry her, and moving to another country. Also he was concerned about his elderly mother, who lived with him.

In Jordan, we visited the famous ancient rose city of Petra, ancient mosaic map of Middle East at Madaba, Roman ruins at Jerash, and Amman and crusader fortresses at Kerak and Shobak. Also we visited Mt. Nebo where Moses is believed to have breathed his last.
