16,07,2015

I moved in to the  other host ‘s house.

After that, I joined a tour of Dead Sea. It’s one.  of the highlights of Jordan along with the Petra heritage.

As the name suggests, any creatures can’t live there due to the high salt concentration.

Nevertheless, it’s  Lively sea for human being. Because it has attracted many tourists around the world as a spa resort, an ancient heritage all the time up to this day.

I hired a private taxi driver for the tour . The reason why I took a taxi is that I heard that it’s a little complicated to go to Dead sea by myself for there are no transportations in Jordan to go there.

Besides it seemed a little dangerous to go alone.

So I decided it even though I was traveling on a budget.

I wasn’t happy to go to Dead sea by taxi at first because of the cost.

Nevertheless, as the driver  stopped by in many good-view-spots on the way so that I could take a picture, I found it good choice later.

Meanwhile, we were apporoaching the Dead sea.

When I saw a signboard of Dead sea finally, my heart started to beat!

Finally, I got to the Dead sea ! I said to myself.

Anyway, I changed the clothes  and went into Dead sea.

The water of Dead sea was warm and moisture. I felt as if being in hot spring.

But on the othe hand, I found it different than anything I’ve ever felt before.

Besides water was so clean and translparent that I could look into the texture of the sand of the sea.

Whatever and whoever  they are, anything can float here in Dead sea because of the high salt concentration.

It’s so famous story that you guys already might know about it, though.

Some must have seen the picture of a person floating in Dead sea.

There were  a lot of mass of salt in the bottom. I scooped it up by the handful. It’s shining like stars!

I put the star-like salt on the body and spread it! It’s a natural salt spa!

Whats more, there were lots of black mud in the bottom of the sea. It’s so effective for our skin that there are many products made of the mud, such as face mask, soap.

In the website, they say  that Cleopatra who is famous for the beauty polished up her beauty with this mud.

After Dead sea, I went to a small town named Madava.

Madava has the fifth largest population and it’s just 30 kilometers from the capital Amman.It takes about two hours to go there in one way. The buses for Madava in Amman.

 This town is famous for the mosaics of Roma era, especially a large mosaic map.

There are also many old historical churches of mosaic design. It’s also  must-see in Madava.

In my case, unforatunately I couldn’t visit those churches as I didn’t have enough time.

Later, I went into a Arabic cafe . I saw a picture of King of Jordan on the wall. I saw the  picture of the King everywhere in Jordan.

The Arabic interior design was also impressive!

Then, we started going back to Amman.
I saw sun setting behind the mountains and dead sea further beyond on the way. It’s so stunning that it still remains in my heart up to now.

I was moved to tears and I couldn’t stop taking pictures.

While riding, I saw local people live in the tent, a flop of goats,a small mosque and so on. All of those sceneries aroused my curiousity.

As I was looking at them, they waved the hands to me. Its  heart-warming experience!

A while later,  I went home.  The host family welcomed my back and took me Ice cream shop.

The area was bustled with many people and different atmosphere than the places I visited this day.

Anyway, I talked about the adventure of the day to them!And they were happily listening my story eating Icecream!
