This is the catch cry of the porter at my hotel. His ethusiasm brings warmth to the chilly marble of the hotel. Amman in winter is certainly wintery, even with the gorgeous blue skies and sunshine.
I meet Ibrahim, my local agent and we spend an evening more focused on food and smoking chicha, than talking business. We drive to see the bright lights of Amman and he confesses that being Berber he has trouble living in the city, preferring the space of southern Jordan and his horses.
Amman is nice enough, but too sprawling for my liking.
I have a few days before the group arrive, but the mini vans that ply the highways will surely get me everywhere in time... I hope. It wouldn't be worth my job to be late to the airport to meet them!
