On this day we crossed the border from Israel to Jordan. A new country meant a new guide and new bus. So we all got off our old bus, watched our luggage get loaded onto a big cart and then walked through customs and immigration to where our new driver was waiting.
Once we got situated, we headed to St. George’s Church in Madaba to see a really cool mosaic map of the ancient middle east dated to the 6th century AD.
Our second stop was Kerak Castle built by the Crusaders.
At this point of the trip, our itinerary got much lighter. The extra time to sleep on the bus during long drives and down time at the hotel was much appreciated.
