Next on the stop was Mt. Nebo, the sight where Moses saw the Holy Land and passed his mantel to Joshua. Although it wasn't an amazingly spectacular PLACE it was amazing to be in such a place and to see the Holy Land. To know that Moses traveled for so long and to be halted at the gates of the promised land must have been horrible, and seeing the lushness of the Jordan valley below me I could definitely understand how wonderful it would have been to see that place after 40 years wandering in the desert. Definitely a sight for sore eyes. It was a beautiful view and only created a longing to see and experience more of what I saw before me.

Here is where I go on a bit of a brain adventure, if you'd like to see what about please read my post entitled "Natives, who the Heck are they?".
Overall, the baptismal site was awesomeness squared and everyone who visits Jordan should go there and enjoy themselves while there. Like I said, it's been westernized (including the price of 12 JD) but is very nice.
