Only a stone’s throw away:
Walk down the South Decumanus road of Roman Gerasa into present day Jerash – or vice versa – and you bridge a time span of two thousand years in just a few minutes.

Actually this switching in time is nothing extraordinary. It happens with every visit to historical monuments or sites. But somehow the remarkable visual perspective from the past to the present in this picture made me specially aware of this fact.
