Fruit and veggies are cheap here.As opposed to in the US, where it is much cheaper to get a box of macaroni and cheese than a stalk of broccoli!However, the American in me misses the macaroni and cheese…
Doves are usually cute.Especially these brown doves here that have interesting calls.They are not so cute at 6:15 in the morning when they are making noise on your windowsill
When you dust your furniture in Jordan, within a week enough dust will settle that it will look like no one has lived in your place for months.I have not seen any cobwebs though!And forget about your shoe shine job.
Khubz taboun is addictive.So is white jubne.And all the various dips that you can eat with bread.
Jordanians all have a major sweet tooth.The chocolate here isn’t very good at all, though, unless you look for the slightly expensive imported stuff.Sweets with sesame seeds in them are excellent, especially these thin sesame and honey cookies with pistachios in them, and these chewy sesame treats with dry rose petals on them.
Olive trees are pretty.There are a few pretty plants here, but I don’t know what some of them are yet. There is a lime tree downstairs.I’m not sure whether we’re allowed to pick the limes or not.There are a lot of them that look ready to be picked.I’ve seen fig trees around too.
I’m far from being the only one whose doorbell sounds like a bird.
There’s a road rage epidemic going around.Glad I don’t drive!
Dry heat really is much more bearable than humid heat.
There are a lot of skin whitening products here, even though I haven’t really seen many Jordanians with dark skin.Even if they are dark, what’s wrong with that?
