The Roman Road

Today we traveled to a place called Um Qais.  This location has some pretty incredible ruins. It also has a Cincinnati-like border.  The Sea of Galilee was just northwest of us, the Golan Heights was in front of us and Syria was to our right (maybe a mile or so for each).

We also ate at a restaurant that might be the coolest place I've ever been.  The picture above shows the entrance.  We could see the Sea of Galilee from our chairs, as well as Syria and and the ruins of this ancient Roman location.

Another fact about this spot.  There are stories in the Bible's New Testament about a man that Jesus meets who is filled with demons.  Jesus heals the man and tells him to go back home and tell everyone.  This was his home area.
