We called into the Greek Orthodox Church of St George in Madaba to see a 6th century mosaic pilgrims’ map of many of the places we’ve been on this trip. This section shows Jerusalem and its main streets.And while we were in a mosaic frame of mind, before you could say “Tree of Life” we found ourselves being ushered through a mosaic factory and shown how these modern-day works of art are created.
Funny how that happens… At least the mosaics were exquisite.Then we drove on through the biblical region of Moab. Can you imagine anyone being able to survive here? Way down in the gorge I spotted this flock of sheep and goats!
After lunch we explored the Crusader castle at Karak.
