A Few More ...

I am just slowly working through this Israel and Jordan images. Here are a few more...

Mosaic Tile Women

While we were in Jordan, we visited a shop where these gorgeous mosaic tile pieces were made. They would put the mosaics on the wall, on tables, on boxes, etc. It was actually really remarkable. The craziest thing, is that as you walk in, there are women making these mosaics right in front of you. They say it takes them sometimes up to four months to make one of them. They have these colored stones that they cut then glue. I asked the one of them if she liked doing it. She said yes, but it hurts her hands and her back because they do it all day everyday.

Mount of Beatitudes

We had the chance to read the Sermon on the Mount and look over the Sea of Galilee one night. We sat on the Mount of Beatitudes; it was a really neat moment for me. 


Petra is a beautiful place. The colors were absolutely fantastic. The light was breathtaking as well.

The people are interesting as well. Some of them still live in the caves of Petra.

Coolest Hotel in Petra

My mom and I got up early one morning to walk around our hotel and photograph. It was really neat because the light was beautiful and the hotel was so unique. These are just a few photographs ...

My family and I had the opportunity to go to Israel and Jordan last month. Here is a little preview . . .
