ItsSunday morning 7 am went to bed last night about 7pm straight after tea we all had kebabs (cubes of meat ) but with no stick it was delicious abrahams choice

yesterday we didnt do what we intended, we walked in the morning to a greek orthodox church which has the oldest map of Palestine in the world in the form of a mosaic on the floor

then we walked back to the hotel in 2 groups i went with the boys and the others went later both groups got lost and we walked in circles for about an hour till jordan remembered seeing a sign of the hotel next to ours Delilah and the other group arived just before us

just after we got back Abraham apeared and so we all got into 2 vehicles and headed for mt tabor where moses viewed the land of promise from here you can see jerico and all the jordan valley today but on a good day can see jerusalem and all the judean mountains

we then headed down a steep windy road to the traditional baptism site of Jesus where John baptised in the jordan it would have been somewhere near here, today it is all about churches there are at least 6 churches of different types here (russian greek catholic etc.) its very hot and dry here and the water looks similar to the murray

we intended to go to a museum on the way back to madaba and then go to amman and see the roman ruins but everyone is tired so we go back to the hotel and we will see if we have time to do that on our last day before we fly home

today we will haed off soon after breakfast to go to petra
