You know how they say that people in the Middle East are really friendly? Not suprisingly, it’s true. Strangers on the street, people in stores, hotel employees, everyone goes way beyond the call of duty. Today, we went into a tiny bakery to buy bread for our picnic lunch, and they wouldn’t accept our dinars! We got three big, delicious flatbreads, still warm from the oven, to carry back to the car. So nice.
And wherever we go, we are told “welcome to Jordan!” by people that actually mean it. Big smiles and shukrans (thank you on Arabic) all around.
Awesome, just awesome.
