Mount Nebo and Madaba

Another CLO trip under my belt, though truthfully Annie our wonder-assistant did everything.  This is one of the trips she loves to do.
Mt. Nebo, where the Bible states Moses viewed the Promised Land.

If you look closely at the horizon line by the wall,
you can see the towers in Amman.

The church of the Virgin Mary, now an archaelogical park.

It's no wonder that Madaba is a mosaic arts center.  Mosaics have been part of its arts history since the 6th Century and the talent is passed down.  The style of mosaics made today remain the same with the Tree of Life usually center stage.
