At the end of October 2010, we will depart for the country of Jordan. Jordan is in the “middle east” and has some well known tourist sites. We will be exploring Amman, the capitol city of Jordan, then heading down to the Dead Sea, Petra, and Wadi Rum. You might recognize Petra as the temple at the end of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. The Dead Sea is famous for being the lowest place on earth and having an extremely high salt content. Its waters are said to have restorative properties. Wadi Rum is a desert area that is renowned for its scenic beauty.
