or Driving in Circles.
Our second day in Jordan we climbed back in the rental car and headed in the direction of the Dead Sea. Our first stop? Mount Nebo. It was on this site that Moses viewed the promised land. On this day, we viewed brown hills and a lot haze.
The church at the top is currently undergoing restoration so there wasn’t much else to explore. Back in the car.
Next stop? Madaba.
Madaba, oh Madaba, your streets and signage are so irritating. It was quite the hunt for the Tourist Authority in Madaba. The streets were narrow. The signs were inconsistent. The map was backwards. The driver was annoyed. Molly was persistent. Just as we were about to forget our plans and head out of town, we found it. Hamdililah!
And we stayed approximately 5 minutes before walking down to a nearby church. In the floor of the church is a 6th century mosaic map of Jerusalem.
After a pizza lunch, we hopped back in the car. I’d say our time driving around the city was nearly equal to the time spent at the sights.
