I was questioned extensively about my Jordan visa, Why did I go there? Who with? What to do? Where did I go? F**king wankers, this makes me not want to come back to the states to soon.
In many ways I wish I had cut short my time here, its cost a bomb coming from Central America. However I've made good use of my time. I've managed to get my camera fixed, buy cleaning stuff and make a trip to Everglades. In all I just have to get used to the prices differences and enjoy here for what it is.
Coming from such poor countries its as much of a culture shock coming here where money is in abundance and on clear view to show; massive skyscrapers, convertible cars, top designer clothes etc etc.
I have hit a couple of the clubs, but only brought one beer. As the beers are 6 dollars a drink I've been drinking sprits at the hostel and going out a bit later. On my second night I went to a hip hop club with a funny ozzy bloke 'disco dave'. You should of seen the yanks faces with him dancing around those just trying to be too cool! Very funny. I think I might try salsa tonight. Overall the music is spot on. Of course the hip hop and salsa, but also the best euphoric trance. I've heard most of my top turns from home whilst in clubs out here.
Today I did a trip to the Everglades, is was the cheapest I could find but still seemed pricey, although I'm glade I did it while I'm here. I took an air boat around the waters for about an hour checking and we were lucky enough to see two wild alligators, turtles and lots of wild birds. After the trip we watched a quick show about the local animals, which included toads, skunks, pumas and of course more gators.
I leave tomorrow really excited about what should be the highlight of my trip...The Galapagos Islands.......
