Hey People
 
                I was not planning on visiting Jordan but I had to get into Israel and am I ever glad I did as this is now one of my favourite places in the whole wide world.  I am staying in a beautiful three star hotel in Madaba for $35 a night that is a short drive to the Dead Sea and a bunch of other cool sites.  Yesterday I hired a cab to drive me to the sea for a float.  That was the coolest experience ever; you can just lie on your back in the water and read a newspaper the water is so buoyant.  After my dip in the Dead Sea, I went to the site where Jesus was baptized.  THE Jesus...Christ...the Lord our GOD!  While I was there I also decided to get baptised in the Jordan River so I got a woman on our tour from Belgium to put some Jordan River water on my head and just in case that was not enough, I baptised my foot in the water.  I feel like I am born again and holier than when I washed my hands in a fountain at the Vatican.
                Today I rented a car and I am off to visit the tomb of Moses...yes THE Moses - guy who led Israelites to the Holy Land and I will also visit the castle where that chick did a belly dance for the king then in return demanded the head of John the Baptist.  Visiting the Holy Land - what a way to spend the Christmas holidays!
