Where I stayed
For a start it is the lowest point on earth at 400 metres below sea level. Then its chemical makeup means nothing, absolutely nothing, lives in it. You are not going to step on a crab or have a bit of seaweed drift by. Then the other weird thing is that there are no craft whatsoever on the sea. Apparently the high buoyancy makes it impossible.
The mud is supposed to have regenerating properties for the skin and organs and Dead Sea products are sold all over the world.
We had a little drama when we first arrived at the Dead Sea
After a lunch overlooking the Dead Sea and browse through their products we got back in our car for the trip back to Amman and our last night in Jordan.
The next day, as our flight was not until the evening our driver took us for a tour of the city including museums, the citadel, and an incredible Roman ampitheatre that is still in use for concerts and opera. Finally it was to the airport for a flight to Damascus.
