Travel Blogs from Amman
... did in a tumult of splashing. Water in the face, eyes burning, lips burning and the taste I can't even describe. Salty. Really salty. Saltier than the saltiest thing you can imagine. Twelve times saltier in fact. Salt. Sea salt though, which tastes different, which is why all the fancy kettle chips are made with it rather than normal salt. So I guess it tasted like a million sea salted kettle chips in one. Fried in wee. It's good for your skin ...
... color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0); box-sizing: border-box;">I then went on to cover my body with the famed dead sea black mud, which stank! But it was fun nonetheless and made for funny pictures :-)
Well, that was an eventful and memorable day. It's only our third day here but we've see some unforgettable things and can't wait to continue!
... As if I wasn't satisfied with what i saw in Amman, I headed to the town of Jerash the next day, 50 km North of Amman, to more Roman ruins and the ancient city of Gerasa. This was my first brush with public transport, always a big moment in travelling through a country, it cost less than a pound to get to Jerash and on seeing a bunch of old ruins I decided this was probably the stop, no English was spoken on this bus.
Public transport and taxis are really cheap in Jordan ...
... There were mass plantings of tulips - MASS! I think the bulbs must
have been jammed next to the others as the planting was so tight. We had
been told that tulips originated in Turkey, and were taken to Holland, where
they did very well, and I have certainly never seen so many. We did have
a wee laugh - Emma commented how they'd be ****** off if there was a rogue colour
amongst all the block plantings, so then of course we looked for them, and saw
... in the daylight, including the height and size of the mountain. It was much bigger than I thought going up, though it's probably best that I didn't know until after I made it to the top. As we neared the bottom, the hanger and tiredness began to set in again, and we made it back to the hotel and ate before the situation became too dire. Alhamdualllah.
Next stop Unawattana, aka the beach! We took another van to the beach. We used airbnb, and I highly recommend this site ...
