Abandoned Jordanian Military Base
Near the beach on the Dead Sea I noticed what looked like an abandoned military base and my Palestinian driver said it was a Jordanian base that was lost during the war in 1967. He said he would drop me there the next day while he took the group to the Dead Sea if I would walk back to the beach. He dropped me there the next morning warning me to watch for Israeli patrols. I was able to walk and photograph in the buildings and saw only one patrol which did not see me. Several of the buildings had some interesting graffiti.
