Journey to Jordan

flyDubai is a local low cost airline that flys in the Middle East, in my case from Dubai to Amman. The online process was pretty easy although the payment process was awkward. On the other hand the check in process was a nightmare. It took an hour and a half for them to check in about 20 people. We passed through security quickly and immediately boarded the plane with no time to spare.

Watching the map was fascinating in that all the names that appear in the news were there- Baghdad, Riyadh, Mecca, Kuwait. Still hard to believe I am really here.

We had a walk around the area where the Kempinski hotel is located, found ourselves a local restaurant and enjoyed a lovely dinner highlighted by hummus, tabouli, fresh bread, baba ganoush (sp?) and a lemon mint drink that is becoming a favorite. I must say I’m not impressed with the hotel. Kempinski properties are usually much better than this one. Just an FYI.

The city awaits tomorrow along with Jerash, Petra and Wadi Rum. It will be an exciting week.
