This morning I woke and took a jog to the border of Jordan. Its port city, Aqaba, is adjacent to Eilat and serves as a vacation sport for Jordanians and other mid-Eastern countries. Just south of Aqaba is Saudi Arabia. Let’s just say the Jordanian border crossing didn’t look too welcoming, so I turned around and headed towards Egypt. Where in the world can you say that but in Eilat? At the main beach, the city was hosting an endurance swimming event. While there probably weren’t many Israman athletes participating, there were several hundred swimmers.
