Our drive from Wadi Rum to the Dead Sea brought a change in landscape…
And also brought us to Jordan’s port city Aqaba that neighbors Eilat, the port city of Israel.
View of Eilat, Israel from Aqaba, Jordan. There is a strip of land separating the two countries.
View of the Red Sea.
Just behind the ship is Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula.More of Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula – the barely visible mountain range behind the ships – and the Red Sea.Aqaba and the Red Sea!
From there, we drove along Highway 65 – also known as the Dead Sea Highway.
Here, you see the fence border between Jordan and Israel.
A small airport in Israel.
Landscape along Highway 65.
And then there it was….the Dead Sea!
