That’s it, the last pictures from Jordan. It has been an amazing trip, with lots of scientific field work, lots of great opportunities for photography an most important: new friends and very interesting people. I hope I’ll be able to return some day…
On the last Friday there, we collected some of the sample containers we had deployed earlier during the first week. Even though it was the end of March, winter jackets were still necessary that day.
Noble gas samples.
Having lunch while watching a sheep being skinned and disemboweled. Quite the experience.
Last weekend day we went for one of the hot springs we previously had sampled, on the invitation of a friend there.
Spent a whole lot of time under that wonderful waterfall, about 40 degrees Celsius warm water, falling from maybe 20 meters.
Such an intriguing place!
While the hotel nearby was way out of everyones league, including ours, the pool at the waterfall was visited by many Jordanians – again, we really stood out as westerners.
The wadi enclosing the springs.
Next morning, boarding the plane.
Crossing the Dead Sea.
Back in Frankfurt, taxiing to the gate.
That’s all folks, thanks for the patience!
