It's no big deal

My Madaba not like, care little church and the mosaic is available to anyone who wants to tread and very little protection. If you go with a package I would skip this tour and of course the typical store.

No es para tanto

A mi Madaba no me gustó, la iglesia poco cuidado y el mosaico está al alcance de quien lo quiera pisar y muy poco protegido. Si no vais con un paquete yo me saltaría esta excursión y por supuesto la tienda típica.
