Bagpipers in Jerash, Jordan

These bagpipers, in this travel photo, perform in the ruins of the Greco-Roman city of Gerasa, today known as Jerash, Jordan. Contrary to a commonly held belief that the instrument originated in Scotland, actually the first documented bagpipe image was found on a Hittite slab dated to 1000 BC in the Middle East. Although I saw no heather covered fiords here, the Cyprus covered hills more than made up for it. Captured while exploring an ancient theater on an Olympus C770UZ.

Steve Smith inherited the wanderlust and has always needed to see what’s around the next corner. His college days were spent enjoying many memorable (and cheap) forays into Mexico sleeping under the stars. Today these excursions are typically press trips and hotels, but gathering unique experiences by getting to know places and people rather than observing as tourists is still their approach to travel. After numerous journeys to North/Latin/South America, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East, he believes this is the true way to experience different cultures.
