First visitors.

Our good friend, Spencer, who lives in Dubai, came to visit us during our 10 day Eid break.  It was really great to see him and spend time with him.  He is a good friend and always makes the effort to come and see us which we are always so grateful for.

After picking these lovelies up from the airport, we stopped off in Madaba for some tourism and for lunch.  Madaba is an ancient city and is home to one of the world's oldest mosaic maps of the Holy Land.  It is housed in a Byzantine church, St George's Church and is said to have been made in the 6th century AD.

The mosaic map of Madaba is the oldest known geographic floor mosaic in art history.
