Nice to see it from the other side! J

... and here's a similar view from the Jordanian side of the river. Photo taken in April 2011. And I was less than 10km from there for my NYE party last night :-)
Happy 2013 everyone!

I was in Israel last month during the Gaza conflict working on some interesting border stuff…here are a couple of pictures from the Baptismal Site of Jesus. I’m on the Israeli side. There is an essentially identical tourism infrastructure on the Jordanian side just a couple of meters away.
1) The broken fence-looking thing and the colored post mark the border in the Jordan River. The colored marker is also a water level marker.
2) Another view with the fency structure in the middle of the river.
3) Me shivering in the cold November waters next to the border.
