The Dead Sea

I arrived back in Jordan on Sunday morning and headed down to the Dead Sea yesterday. It's about an hour south of Amman and about 20 degrees warmer. At the urging of my colleagues, I decided to splurge and I'm spending several days at the Movenpick resort, which is right on the sea.



The sea at sunset. Right after I took this, I headed into the water, which is incredibly salinated making it unable to do anything but float. The water also feels a bit oily, like many people went in wearing too much sunscreen. Those shapes you see in the photo are people bobbing in the water.

Tea this morning on my balcony.

Did you get to float in the dead sea? I did that on the Israel side and it's so relaxing. The Jordan side is very cool, much more resort like. Looks like you had fun!
