I loved that you could open the window in the hotel room!

We got brave and climbed out there...though the railing was rickety and in disrepair. (Our non-smoking floor didn't allow for cigars otherwise!)
The view was amazing, the Amman Stock Exchange and a few banks...the Marriott Amman and a few soccer games in the abandoned parking lot next door! xo


Nice video...gives a real "flavour" to the trip. Look how tightly packed everything is into a small space...and very urban where you were staying!

The ring and the necklace...I should have known! I think I guessed on the necklace? If that's what that is!! :)

That is what it is...like a bib necklace, super gorgeous antique Bedouin silver & antique coral...I fell in love. I should have tried harder to find a dress but time didn't allow. I'm going back though one day so I'll get one then :)


I don't know why I was surprised to see such an urban view. Loved this!

Nice shots from the balcony; it was nice to open the sliding glass doors. You should have been with me when I was photographing Bedouin women. I was given two dresses (although I couldn't accept, without offering them some money). You'll get the right dress someday; the place we went and they were moving to another location has gorgeous handmade dresses. Still waiting for my DHL box w/ rugs and second dress to arrive. xoxox

Terrific snippet. I love the singing on the BW tv. Sigh. So exotic and different, it is those little things, no?


Makes me want to go back...of course!
