Skywatch Friday–Jordan is all Greek and Latin to me

I was in Jordan a couple of years ago and we went to Jerash, which was an ancient Greco Roman city called Gerasa. The ancient city was buried under the sands of time, until excavations discovered it less than a century ago.

Jordan is on my list of "must visit" countries. Thanks for sharing the pictures. The contrast of blue and granite pillars is lovely.
