I’m in the Amman airport at about 11 in the morning before I leave for Beirut. It’s been a good day so far and if everything goes as planned I’ll be in Beirut in about 2 hours. Although there was much that I loved about Jordan, there was much that I was not that fond of, to be more precise, the people that I met were without a doubt kind and considerate, but I got the feeling that they looked at me more like a meal ticket than a person. Amman wasn’t that bad, but in Petra I felt extremely uncomfortable trying to buy anything. It didn’t matter where you went it was like the prices of items were based on the nothing more than the emotions of the shopkeeper. That prices changed daily, sometimes lower and sometime higher. Oh Well.
I met up with a French mother and daughter that lived in India the other day, and since it seems like we were on the same schedule. We were in the same hotel in Petra, I saw them in the park, we were on the same bus to Amman, and we shared a taxi from the bus station to the same hotel, and this morning we shared a taxi to the airport. It was something that I really needed. It’s been tough so far traveling by myself, so any company is really welcomed, and Caroline and her daughter were especially fun to be around.
