Sightseeing Saturday

Greetings and welcome to another Sightseeing Saturday. As promised, Jerash in Jordan is our next advenure.

"Dubbed the "Pompeii of the East," Jerash is a Greco-Roman ruined city located 80 miles north of Amman. The impressive, beautifully preserved ruins of Jerash include places of worship and other buildings from the Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantine and early Muslim periods."

Thank you so much for the tour. There are so many places in the world that many of us will never see. It is wonderful to see them through anothers eyes.
Surely you have some sort of weather change there?

What a lucky gal to live close to such places! I love history, and would LOVE to travel to places where there are still remainings for the world's past. Someday, I know I will. In the meantime, I'm lucky to know and learn about them through friends, so thanks for sharing!!

How fortunate you are to be able to touch history - literally. I can't imagine how awed I would be to see such ancient ruins. Magnificent.
