Ash Shabok and Madaba

These dogs aren' t daft. We stopped at the viewpoint overlooking the fortress to find a passing goatherd. Sounds like a song from the Sound of Music. The dogs kept within the shadow of the donkey to keep cool.

The Crusader Fortress of Ash Shabok, stunning when surrounded by the clouds. The outer walls are intact and it as a stunning view as you approach.

Inside is ruined but the guided tour brought it to life.

View from the precarious top of the fortress.

The arab is me! The way you wrap your scarf has a meaning. This way means a single woman,apparently. The stall holder wrapped it round for me!!! The sign is showing the Arabic spelling for the Fortress.

The house where the leader lived with such a commanding view.

The Orthodox Church of St George in Madaba where there is a superbly intricate mosaic of Old Jerusalem covering the original floor.

View of Madaba, a traditional Jordanian city with no high rise buildings, traditional way of life, dress and customs.

The 'upside down chicken' in a traditional restaurant in the back streets of Madaba...a layer of chicken, vegetables, rice, steamed, then turned upside down to serve.

We thought that this was a refugee camp not a Bedouin settlement on the outskirts of the town.

Lots of textiles for tourists

Traditional street in the town centre
