2nd Weekend-Trip to Amman

This is the Amphitheater in Amman. The city is built right around it. The Jordanian boys kept following us until we took there picture with Daniel and showed it to them on the digital camera. They crack us up.
Old part of town, across the street.


This is the baptism site and the first thing that Daniel said when we got there was "Where is the water?" Then Roberto had to go into this whole thing about how rivers change courses over 100's of years and how Israel and Jordan have also been on bad terms because Israel wants this site but the border has always been the Jordan River and now the river moved and so Israel which once had the site now doesn't and blah, blah, blah. Then Daniel says "I just want to go back!" We laughed. It was hot and it was a pretty good hike in. He was tired and thirsty and maybe a little disappointed to say the least.


As Roberto put it "This is where Moses said 'This is the place' and then there was that guy in Utah who copied him". It was an excellent view and we didn't have to hike in, we drove all the way to the top of the mountain and Daniel liked that part best.
