Closeby the Dead Sea; you cannot drive directly to the Site because of its close proximity to the West Bank. You leave your car at a parking lot and a shuttle with a guide takes you close to the Baptism Site where you leave the bus behind and walk a short distance. The Baptism Site is inaccessible, but you're taken to another place a short distance away where you're able to touch the Jordan River. I knew the river would be much smaller now than in ancient times, but it's surprising how narrow it truly is; a good athlete would be able to pole vault from the Jordanian East Bank to the opposite West Bank with little or no trouble at all. A definite must see.
