    ... trying to explain this address to a taxi driver. And I was right. The taxi driver had no idea, even with my ever so inaccurate Google Maps displayed in front of him, showing the location which was five blocks away from where it should have been. While in the taxi and trying to explain the address to him, it occurred to me. Via Recta? OK - so that's not Arabic. It's Latin. No help to me in a country that doesn't speak Latin. It's supposed to mean "Straight Street" or as ...

    ... Tim has no patience whatsoever. He finally gave the Jordanian border officials a piece of his mind telling them they were running a circus! It was only when I mentioned Strip searches and ‘Marigolds’ that he began to calm down. Amman is not much of a tourist city with business and crazy driving the focus. Half a day’s sightseeing pretty much did the job before we deiced to move on towards the dead sea and all things ...

The highlight for both of us was one security guard who gave us a secret tour of the upstairs portion of the museum, where tourists are not supposed to go. He crept up the stairs silently, like some kind of burglar, peering around the corners to ensure that no one would spot us. What we saw upstairs wasn't of particular interest to us, but the fact that the guard took ...
