... accustomed to "Welcome to Jordan".... I certainly was!
If I thought the first gesture was kind then the second gesture was one that all travellers hope happens to them. There was a gent in front of me, by the name of Ahed, who on speaking to him, had spent 7 years in Phoenix, Arizona as a Tobacconist, specialising in selling shisha pipes which is a big part of the culture in Jordan.

Directing our eyes away from the rather scantily clad individuals at the entrance to the beach, we made our way further down the shore to a more private location. Then we eased into the water. It was the strangest sensation I have ever felt. We floated like ice cream in rootbeer. I stuck my tongue into the water to see what it was like, and ...

It was essentially a locker room with two large bathtubs in it, not all that impressive looking, but apparently a very holy place for many of the Jews in that town.
