Jordan - Mt. Nebo and the Dead Sea




Moses' View from Mt. Nemo 


                                                                               Buried somewhere in this valley 



There in the far distance -

The Promised Land




On the road to the Dead Sea


                       A check point because we're so close to 

                                               the border


                                                                                       Tents in the desert




Resort on the Dead Sea 


Some of the exceptionally high mineral content                   



You really can't swim - You float

I couldn't get my feet under me to stand 

Basically you float & giggle




                     Tradition has one get covered with the "miraculous" Dead Sea minerals (read mud) for 

a skin treatment & a general health bath             


You get smeared with mud, let it dry as you walk around, 

and then into the Dead Sea to wash it off
