For breakfast at the hotel today I had a traditional Jordanian breakfast of fava beans and olive oil and tahini. It was something I would never think of making for breakfast as an American, but it was filling and healthy.
The fava beans were in he big vat and then the toppings (sumac also) around it.
We visited the Blue Mosque, which provides visitors with abayas, modest clothing to put over you. I came prepared.
It is a beautiful mosque, if not as spectacular as the ones I visited in Turkey. It is still in the Ottoman style with the dome and is not painted but done with small blue mosaic tiles.
The direction of Mecca is pointed out by this area. Muslims face that direction when praying. In our hotel room, this sticker points out the direction to pray.
On to Jerash, which is also the second largest ancient Roman city after Rome and Ephesus.
At the temple of Artemis, the daughter of Zeus.
Ate a splendid Jordanian lunch in Jerash together.
Went to the Citadel site back in Amman, which also is Roman and Umayyad ruins.
