Full day in Amman

Today I rested well to wake up naturally and plan the rest of my stay in Jordan. I went out with my new Dutch friend to the Roman amphitheater to walk around. A couple of Muslim girls stopped us so they could have a picture with us. We then headed up the mountain to the citadel to see the Roman ruins of the fortress that looks over the city.

We then found a cab to take us to lunch, then to the blue mosque. The mosque was surprisingly dull inside with just a huge room. I’d expected a pretty ornate interior but it was just a huge carpeted room.

After the mosque we went back and I started to organize my next days at Petra, wadi rum, and decided to add Jerusalem and Bethlehem to my itinerary since I’m so close to them being here.
