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.
