Here's a shot of the mosaic on the floor of St George's church in
Madaba. It was huge (17 meters x 7 meters), old (560 AD),
informational (covered all of the holy sights from modern day Egypt,
Jordan, Israel, and Syria), and intricate (approx 1.5 million pieces
of stone). Only a third of the original remains... but it is very
impressive. The photo is zoomed in on Jerusalem.

When we traveled with you and Anissa to this spot, you thought it was a nice puzzle. "Return of the native"!!!.
