Today we went to three different sites, Mount Nebo, Madaba and Kerek Castle. This was on our long drive from Amman to Petra. Between the stops and the driving time we did not get to our hotel until after 6:30pm. And then had to wait while a busload of German tourists checked in first. So I am way behind on working on pictures. I did finish Mount Nebo and the drive to the site. I like to take shots through the car window as we drive - usually not very successful, especially if the road is very rough as the ones in Jordan are. But I wanted a taste of what the country side is like. We saw some buildings that reminded us of Albania. Building stops midway - sometimes because the money runs out, or as out guide explained, sometimes they are just waiting for a child to get married and need a place to live before they build the next story.
