Gerasa or also Jerash

Today we had a day trip to Jerash on the plan. To reach the ancient site we had to meander through the traffic for about 40 km during rush hour around Amman. To our surprise the whole area was prepared for a festival, which probably takes place the next days. The thirty-fourth such event.

The South and North Theaters have been returned to their former purpose as well as the Oval Plaza and other archaeological sites. Safety regulations do not seem to have been completely revised from the pre-Christian era.

There are an abundance of impressive buildings to visit. The Roman presence before and after Chr. has left clear traces.

Afterwards we went back to the hotel where we had dinner.
