"Ask Locals about the Way" Local Life Tip by schmechi

Local Life, Jordan: 32 reviews and 36 photos

  Local Bedouin

Outside of Amman, where English is widely spoken you'll probably have to face language barriers. Especially asking locals for the way can easily led to misunderstandings, because they use also different gestures. Instead of pointing in a direction, they will take your hands and make the movements you ought to make to steer your vehicle into the right direction.
