  jibrail smoking nargileh (for a change)
by call_me_rhia

Favorite thing: Jordanian people are the most wonderful I've ever met: their friendliness and kindness is unrivalled. People went out of their way to be nice and helpful, even when I didn't need help at all. Mostly they used to stop me in the street and ask where I was from, then they thanked me for visiting their country and told me they were honoured I was visiting (sidenote: it was in 2002, the day after israel "invaded" Palestine). Your kindness, i will hold it in my heart forever

Fondest memory: my wonderful friend Jibrail who led me by the hand through all amman (from popular place to off-the-beaten path places). he also filled me up with great food and nargileh, and filled me in with insiders' stories, history, info, local customs and all. Then my new-found palestinian friend Sam, fun as hell and very much interested in sharing his political opinions with me... and driving me everywhere. A third special person is Titti and her friend Maura: who met up with me for one evening... VT minimeeting in Amman... a wonderful surprise.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
