We continue to struggle with technology issues in Jordan. The students will try and post their comments from Mount Nebo (the place where Moses viewed the Promised Land before being taken up), an artists conclave in Madaba that specializes in mosiacs to help handicapped Jordanians, one of the greatest mosques in Amman, and some street market free time during our time at Kings Academy tomorrow afternoon.

We spent our last morning in Israel touring the ruins of Scythapolis at Beth Shean. We then crossed over the border into Jordan and spent the rest of the afternoon touring the amazing ruins of Jerash, one of the best preserved examples of Roman architecture in the world.
An earthquake in 749 AD knocked over most of the structures
but the theatre still works! The acoustics are remarkable.

having some fun in the main square of the town
