Unfortunately, we didn't have a guide book and there were too few interpretive or education exhibits in the ruins themselves, so we really didn't know what we were seeing. We did eavesdrop on a few tour guides and did read up on things after he fact via the Internet.
The ruins were very expansive and you could easily spend 3+ hours wandering around the area. The extent of buildings, columns, theaters, etc. was indeed quite amazing
We left by about 11:30 for the airport to continue our travels. Or two flights from Amman to Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates) and then to Colombo on Etihad and Sri Lanka airlines were uneventful, other than taking all the entire night to reach Colombo. We arrived finally in Sri Lanka at 4:30 am.
Once we get settled in Sri Lanka, I'll add more to the blog.
