Weekly Photo Challenge: Foreign - Olive Tree

Weekly Photo Challenge: Foreign – Olive Tree

for·eign  [fawr-in, for-]

adjective

1. of, pertaining to, or derived from another country or nation; not native: foreign cars.
2. of or pertaining to contact or dealings with other countries; connected with foreign affairs.
3. external to one’s own country or nation: a foreign country.
4. carried on abroad, or with other countries: foreign trade.
5. belonging to or coming from another district, province, etc.

My photograph shows an Olive Tree, in the gardens of the The Movenpick Resort & Spa at the Dead Sea in Jordan.

Although to most British people an olive tree is foreign, this particular tree is foreign to Jordan. It is a 2000 year old tree from Beth Lehem in the West Bank that has been moved to this resort. So although Olive trees are found commonly all over Jordan, this particular one is foreign.
Personally I find the idea of a 2000 year old tree absolutely astounding. Just imagine all the things that this tree has seen. Incredible.
