Crazy Day. @.@

Perfect example of Arabs lacking the ablility to plan:
This lovley morning, we woke up to the phone ringing. An Uncle was at the closest Uncle's house, and ready to take us on a day trip to where-the-hell-ever-it-was-that-we-wanted-to-go. It was super-nice of him, and we chose Madaba!

That didn't last much longer than Madaba it's self. We walked around (following the line in the sidewalk that lead to all the tourist attractions) to churches and saw some pretty majorly impressive mosaics, One which was even a map of the middle east. These were from the sixth century.

We got pretty hungry after all that.... And tried to find food. Unsucsessfully. So our Uncle came up with his grand plan! Get chips at minimart for now. Take them to the place Moses died (which was really cool- we could see Palestine and the dead sea). By then, We were hungry again!
"Hmmm... we're close to the Dead Sea, and there's a really good restaurant there!"
So, we set off for food! After that, we go take pictures of the dead sea.
And then...
"Hmmm.... There's another way back to Amman, and it's really pretty!"
So we went.
Not like we minded any of this, just thought it was funny... We set off at 10 to see one church an hour away, and didn't get back till 8pm. But we had a good day!
We saw some really old houses dug in the sides of cliffs.
We saw a huge line of goats climbing up what was nearly a cliff.
We saw the Dead sea in the day.
We saw some beautiful art from the sixth century.
And I got a clock! :D
