Hi from Jordan!

Isn't a free wifi hotspot a brilliant thing? Here I am, by the shores of the Dead Sea, and I can post on my blog! Yippee!

Well, we Nazareth cyclists put in a good, if brief, day's cycling from Madaba to the Dead Sea. There are 18 of us, ranging in age from 16 to 71. Wide range, and I hope we all make it. The Jordanian people are of course lovely, and we're being very well looked after.

Took a dip in the Dead Sea - very choppy today, utterly filthy, of course, in a (hopefully) sterile kind of way. The scenery on the way down was amazing, but very poor visibility due to high winds and dust in the air.

Tomorrow is another matter - a long day ahead to Jerash. Thanks for the sponsorship - http://justgiving.com/shanemckee

  1. Well done Jimmy! Keep up the good work. As you are cycling, so I am walking! Now up to 8 miles a day.
