Subject: Re: Israel, Jordan, Egypt
Hi, Felice:

It's been 5 years since I was in Jordan & I would go again in a heartbeat. Given the mess in the Middle East, tho, it may be a while before Jordan's back in my Top Five.

The standard tourist sites like Petra, Dead Sea & Wadi Rum are worth visiting, as are the historical areas like Um Qays, Pella, Jerash, Mt Nebo & the baptism sites along the Jordan River. I found the latter two very moving. I'm a Templar nut, so Kerak was amazing to me. Given time, I would have taken time to scuba at Aqaba & spent much more time exploring.
