  stop... traffic... danger (?)
by call_me_rhia

there is really absolutely no danger in Jordan. Trust me on this: I walked around at night-time without any hassles or dangers: I'm blond, I'm white, I have green eyes. Some people made some comments, but most just enquired if i was lost or needed any help. However be on alert in case of demonstrations: if they are not authorized by the police, the police will intervene and they are known to hit hard before asking questions. People demostrating are rarely dangerous, but it's wise to have some evident proof either of your political ideas (wear a Palestinian khefia maybe) or your citizenship (be quick in taking out your passport). This last tip, sadly, is not much helpful if you have an Israeli passport i'm afraid.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
