Mount Nebo 1
By far the best meal we ate was at this restaurant in Madaba. We ate family style and
had 9 dishes served to us before the entre of mixed kabab. mmm mmm good!

 

We walked through downtown Madaba to a church.

 

In Madaba, Jordan, we visited a church that had the oldest map of the middle
east in a ceramic mural on the floor. The travelers from the east
would visit, copy the map and continue on their journey
toward Egypt or Israel.  Mo was our guide for 5
days thru Jordan, he explained the ancient map.

 

The Church with many murals on the wall. Note the red ropes keep
people from walking on the ancient map.

 

A portion of the mosaic map, much of it was destroyed thru the years.

 

 

 

These mosaics were breath taking.
