Wow, I am impressed




I AM SO IMPRESSED! Today I went to the Dead Sea panoramic museum. What an FANTASTIC place with STUNNING views, AMAZING architecture and a wonderful museum. Everyone should go to find out about our Dead Sea and how it is disappearing at the rate of 1 metre a year, though the unofficial statistics for 2006 is 1.5 metres. There is a restaurant, lovely terrace to sit on and everything so well arranged and looked after (so far!!).
From Amman drive to the Dead Sea hotel complex (Marriott/Movenpick etc) then drive a further 7 kilometres, take the left turn sign posted to Madaba, Mt Nebo and drive 10 kilometres and it is on the right hand side. The road is an incredible feat of engineering, well constructed and marked and with many safety features. But do drive carefully! T

the museum explain all aspects of the Dead Sea 'including the geological origin of the Dead Sea, ecological characteristics of the region, archeology, history and future conservation'. It is a natural history museum, well laid out and very interesting. The Royal Society for the Conservation of Nature is running the place. I hope they can keep it up to standard. T
