The Great Plotnik

Tuesday, September 28, 2010


We interrupt our current story to present images gathered of The Great BZWZ's expedition to Jordan this summer.

It all looks nothing short of astonishing -- you walk through The Eye of the Needle -- bascially one of many channels carved over millennia by water eroding soft sandstone --

...and come upon this.

If you look to the side of the above photos you see these small squares snaking up the side of the stone next to the structures -- those are the marks left by the original Nabataean builders which most likely allowed them to climb up the rocks to the top of their proposed structures, and then build down to the ground.

It was a lot of fun to look at these photos together the other night, and many more besides. The Great Dance-Nik was in attendance. More on that maƱana.
