2018 Eastern Mediterranean Trip - Day 19, Quick Update As We Head South

Mount Nebo where Moses looked upon the Holy Land after having led the Israelites through the desert just before dying

St. George's Greek Orthodox Church in Madaba, one of the wonders of Byzantine mosaic art in a town renowned for it

Karak, Crusader fortress that withheld a siege by Saladin for over a year

All this we saw today as we worked our way south on our way to Petra.

There were hours of driving in between and we didn't arrive at our hotel in Petra until 6:30 PM. So the going through all the photos has been greatly delayed. And OH MY GOODNESS some of the stuff we saw today. And yet tomorrow we will be in one of the wonders of the ancient world, Petra. So the pictures are going to take some time to come out.

Until tomorrow.
