This was a Mount Nebo day. It's a 30 km climb from the Dead Sea, as difficult as the one to Karak. Again I was drenched, but this time from the rain that caught me half way up.
Around Mt Nebo there are some teenagers practicing English they learned through TV: the ubiquitous phrases like "you bitch", "fuck you", etc.
I came to Madaba wet and shivering, but again I found a hotel featuring hot water and heating. I really had my lucky star with me on this trip. In the morning I took breakfast with next door neighbors and after I moaned that I run out of ideas what to do for the rest of the tour, they indicated that I could visit Israel.
Day 10: 52km. Total 871km.
