Mission to Jordan, Day 5 (see previously 9.264 Lots of Chicken, Loads of Rice) – personal deviation.

In Aqaba.  Previously in Amman to attend a Meeting of the Regional Parliamentary Working Group on Universal Health Coverage in the Eastern Mediterranean Region – Tue to Wed.  Staying on in country for a couple extra days to dive in the Red Sea.

Staying at and diving thru Arab Divers.

The diving was awesome.  Having grown used to diving in the Philippines, I was struck by the different topography, different structures, different colors.   And the wrecks – not historical, recently scuttled just to give tourists something to look at, but still very cool.

Interestingly, the desert air was so hot and arid that gear would dry to a clean crisp in between dives.

Jordan is the 5th country and the Red Sea is the 6th body of water where I’ve enjoyed the privilege of diving.

  1. Philippines, Balayan Bay (Anilao) (see 9.042 Garlic Squid + Buttered Vegetables); Batangas Bay (Puerto Galera) (see 9.115 Budae Jjigae)
  2. Fiji, Nadi Bay (Nadi) (see most recently 6.104 Seared Mahi Mahi)
  3. Maldives, Arabian Sea (Male) (see most recently 9.190 Grilled Snapper)
  4. Malaysia, Tunku Abdul Rahman National Park (Kota Kinabalu) (9.248 Homemade Chicken Curry)
  5. Jordan, Red Sea (Aqaba)
