Women in Jordan...
St. George's Greek Orthodox Church. The mosaic on the
floor is one of the earliest maps of the region.
Mount Nebo - The Brazen Serpent statue created by an
Italian artist is a biblical reference to the bronze serpent Moses created in
the wilderness to cure the Israelites from snake bites. From the hilltop you can
see Israel across the Dead Sea.
Mosaics excavated at a nearby archaeological site.
We have finally arrived at the Dead Sea. The sea is so

the skin. Some people believe the mud is good for the health.
