Unterwegs im Norden

Die letzten Tage haben wir uns den Norden Jordaniens etwas näher angesehen. Die Ausflüge, die wir dorthin gemacht haben, waren eingerahmt in eine blühende Frühlingslandschaft. Wäre ich in Deutschland, hätte ich das Gefühl mitten im Juni zu stecken, aber hier ist natürlich alles viel früher dran. Da zudem alles voll ist mit Olivenhainen, hat man ein bißchen das Gefühl irgendwo in Griechenland, Südfrankreich oder Italien unterwegs zu sein.

Die Ruinen von Gerasa und Gadara, die eigentlich die Hauptprogrammpunkte im Norden waren, sind fast unter einem Blumenteppich verschwunden, was sehr malerisch gewirkt hat. Beide Städte waren Teil der Dekapolis, einem römischen Städtebund.

Die Ruinen von Gerasa

Gerasa - Hauptstrasse

Gerasa (heute Jerash), das man gerne als „Pompeij des Ostens“ bezeichnet, war schon in der Bronze- und Eisenzeit besiedelt, berühmt ist es aber vor allem für seine teilweise noch sehr gut erhaltenen Bauten aus dem 2. Jh. AD. Man betritt die Stadt durch den Hadriansbogen, läuft auf der alten Strasse vorbei am Hippodrom – wo für die Touristen immer noch Pferderennen veranstaltet werden – spaziert über das Forum und die alte Strassenkreuzung und wenn man dann im alten Lebensmittelmarkt (Macellum) steht oder in einem der beiden Theater, fühlt man sich fast 1800 Jahre in der Zeit zurück versetzt. Nur das Wetter hat nicht so richtig mitgespielt, es hat den ganzen Tag geregnet und hatte nur 12 Grad, was einem nach den heißen Tagen in Südjordanien bitterkalt vorkommt. Entsprechend haben wir gefroren.

Gerasa - Artemis-Tempel

Dafür hatten wir in Gadara (heute Umm Qays) wieder schönes Wetter und dazu ein schon fast fürstliches Mittagessen – nicht wegen des Essens selbst, sondern wegen des Restaurants. Das Resthouse in Gadara ist nämlich mindestens so berühmt, wie die Ruinen selbst. Man tront dort auf großen gepolsterten Sesseln über der antiken Stadt, mit Blick auf den See Genezareth und die Berge und schlürft gemütlich seinen Limonen-Minze-Drink. Aber die Ruinen kamen auch nicht zu kurz, wobei ich mich nur schwer entscheiden kann, ob nun die Säulen, Strassen und die antike Ladenstrasse beeindruckender waren, oder die Flora und Fauna dort, denn alles versank in einem Meer aus Blüten.

 

Gadara - Hauptstrasse

Einwohner Gadaras

Gestern haben wir dann noch die Grabung des DEI auf dem Tell Zira’a besucht, der direkt neben Gadara liegt und von der Frühbronzezeit bis ins 19. Jh. besiedelt war, was u.a. damit zu erklären ist, dass er verkehrstechnisch günstig an einer alten Handelsstrasse liegt. Und Tell Safud, wo man bronzezeitliche Baureste bewundern konnte, stand ebenfalls auf dem Programm.

Ansonsten verbringen wir unsere Freizeit derzeit damit, uns auf dem Heimweg irgendwelche typisch mitteleuropäischen Gerichte auszudenken und sie dann möglichst gut nachzukochen. Das freut vor allem die Mitreisenden, die seit Herbst 08 unterwegs sind und die letzten Monate nur selten Gelegenheit hatten solche zu essen. Vorgestern gabs z.B. Kaiserschmarrn mit Apfelmus und davor Käsespätzle mit Salat – und es war ziemlich lecker.

Weitere Neuigkeiten in Kürze (wobei wir jetzt erst einmal wieder Strecke zurücklegen werden, d.h. ich weiss noch nicht, wann ich mich wieder melden kann).

(An dieser Stelle: allen Kommentarschreibern ein herzliches Dankeschön! Ich freue mich immer sehr von Euch zu hören, ich kann nur leider aus zeitlichen Gründen nicht antworten, da der Computer hier gut ausgebucht ist.)

Herzliche Grüsse

    Menschenskinder, dass erste Bild is wahnsinn.
    Bei uns hier is der Blick aus dem Fenster ja ähnlich schön. ….. na ja… fast.
    Leider fallen mir grad keine archäologischen Dinge ein die ich zum Besten
    geben könnte.
    Es ist aber wirklich super da ein wenig mit durch den nahen Osten zu tingeln.
    Wie is eigentlich das Essen, gehts dir so wie in Vietnam oder passt alles?

    Grüße aus der Heimat.

    Regenwetter zwar, aber solche dramatischen Bilder von römischen Ruinen entschädigen doch für alles, oder? Bin gerade vom Schneesturm an der Ostsee zurück… und würde gerne tauschen 😉
    Viel Spaß und gute Weiterreise – bin gespannt auf neue Berichte!

    لا شك بأنّ المادة الخرسانية تمتص الحرارة، لذلك هناك الكثير من المواد التي تمّ تصنيعها كي تستخدم في العزل الحراري، ومن هذه المواد المستخدمة بكثرة: الصوف الصخري: يكون إمّا على شكل ألواحٍ يتمّ إلصاقها بالسطح، أو عن طريق بلاط المزايكو الذي يحتوي على نسبةٍ كبيرةٍ من الصوف الصخري، وأما الطريقة الأخرى فهي عبارةٌ عن لفائف من الصوف الصخري الخام حيث تفرد على كامل مساحة السطح ثمّ تصب طبقةٌ خرسانية فوقها. مادة البيرلايت: وهي عبارة عن مادة معدنية متعددة الجوانب ومكلفة مادياً، وهي من المواد التي تستخدم للعزل الحراري، إذ يتم فرد هذه المادة على السطح بطرقٍ خاصة، أو يتم وضعها مع الخرسانة، حيث تعمل هذه المادة على عكس الحرارة، كما انّها تعمل كمادة عازلة للصوت.

    Risk and Reward:
    While the goal is to create impressive fruit combinations, players must tread carefully to avoid the risk of suika game overflow. Letting fruits spill over the container brings the game to an abrupt halt. The delicate balance between ambition and strategy adds an element of risk and reward, keeping players on the edge of their virtual orchard adventures.
