|Jordanian Crew with Sandy at Petra, Jordan|
I just returned from Jordan where I worked on filming Jordan as a destination for tourists and conferences.
Thank you to Mona Naffa and Barbara Kamal from Jordan Pacific Business Development.
The team spent a considerable amount of time at the Dead Sea which is about 35 minutes outside of Amman at the lowest body of water on earth and the world's richest source of natural salts accumulated throughout thousands of years. Known for its buoyancy, and recognized since the days of Herod the Great, the Dead Sea is a perfect example of the Jordanian people understanding the powers of this natural phenomenon.
Sandy and her team worked with the primary salt and mud extraction company in Jordan called Numeira. The film crew was giving the opportunity to follow the gestation of a molecule of water from the Dead Sea all the way through the 9 month journey to become salt for beautifying skin and bathing remedies.
Numeira’sGeneral Manager, Ismail Daqour, a veteran in Dead Sea engineering and an extraction expert, said, ‘we are excited to share with the world this special area in Jordan including the benefits of our products that are naturally taken out of the sea and processed into high quality beauty and health care products”.
Mr. Daqour led the film crew through the route which included a ride on a specially constructed boat built by a US company. The vessel was built to work within the harsh elements of the highly salt content of the water and requires constant maintenance with an expected lifespan of just 15 years.
The Dead Sea mud was also examined as the TravelTalkMEDIA crew found out first-hand the care and consideration taken when harvesting mud and salt which is known to have dozens of minerals that can contribute to health and wellness including skin disorders and possible alleviation of arthritis and rheumatic and degenerative joint diseases. Dead Sea products from Numeira are offered online at: http://www.numeira.com
Jordan often referred to as the Switzerland of the Middle East also provided a colorful backdrop as the film crew captured the sights and sounds of the city of Amman and the treasures of Petra. The video productions will be distributed later this summer to travel TV networks and online TV delivery systems.
