March 18, 2016 Sea Day

This was the first of four days at sea on our way to the port of Aqaba or Al’ Aqaba in Jordan. We had an escort military ship near us as we head through the waters known for having pirates in the past.

We had a lecture by our location guide David regarding Aqaba as well as a more detailed lecture by a new guest speaker by the name of Martyn Green. Bill Crews gave a lecture on the origins of Islam and how it spread across most of the globe. His lectures are very good but they are filled with so many facts, figures and dates that it is overwhelming.

In the afternoon Mark attended the watercolor class while Kent went to the gym and the sauna. The evening entertainer was a violinist by the name of Izabella Zebrowska from Poland. She played a wide variety of music from classical to modern.
