In late March, planning for a weekend trip:
“Where should we go?”
“Let’s go to Umm Qais, it’s very nice since it’s spring”
“You’re like the 100th person who says Umm Qais is nice during the spring!”
"Yes but it is true, yalla!"
Gadara is the name of the Greco-Roman city, whose ruins remain on mountaintop, one of the most glorious cities of the Decapolis. It is also the place where Jesus is said to have cast out the demons from a person to a herd of pigs. The city is partly made of black basalt stone, which makes it special.
And as you can see from the pictures, it was pretty spectacular with all the spring flowers.
