Most of the gang together

Today I was able to meet up with Melody and Matt (aka the married couple) and see there very chic flat. Annie and her sister Leila met us at my house and we took a taxi to Mekkah street. I have been trying to pay very close attention to the roads so I can give clear directions to the taxi drivers when I am alone. I will be taking my first cab alone tomorrow. I think I know what and how to say the directions.........eh maybe.

Amman became real for me today as I got out into the city more. The weather has been really nice and I felt comfortable walking around the bustling streets. A bunch of us took off towards a market place to get some falafel at Mattam Hashim and the famous Kunafa of Habiba. The meals were extremely tasty and not too expensive. After that we headed back to M and M's place to wait for Annie and James to arrive. It was good to get the group together( me, james, and robert) i will miss them while they are in mafraq and i am in Amman.

I am starting to feel the jet lag kick in so I will leave on this note........I still love Amman. It has been exciting and challenging getting to know the area and talk with all sorts of people. I look forward to the rest of this week. should be interesting................................................
