Happy Halloween! Although, you wouldn't know it was Halloween here - no candy, no costumes, no trickery!
Today was a quiet, restful day. Our farewell supper was some of the best food I've eaten while here. I had tabbouleh, an artichoke pizza and baba ghanoush which is a Levantine dish with eggplant, onions, tomatoes, olive oil and seasonings. I first tried it at a tea stall along the route to the Monastery at Petra. I sat down to visit with a woman and she was making it. She used a pestle to make a very fine consistency and when I make this at home, that's what I'll do too-
Jordenglish! Lamp really means lamb. I didn't try this-
Our group enjoyed the tastes of Jordan at a great restaurant called Jafra. The haze is shisha smoke - apple, cherry, mint. It makes me sick but people just go crazy for it-
I've enjoyed my time in Jordan but I don't think it's a place I will come back to - not because of anything in particular, I've just seen it and now it's time for more adventures! Off to Cairo tomorrow!
