Amman .... Winter Time!!
One of the things to miss in Jordan winter time is having a hot hot Mansaf jameed karaki in cold weather, noses red, wearing a jacket and with you hands sliding into el-seder with boiling laban pouring over the rice and meat and you sitting among all people enjoying the orgasmic feeling which would last the entire day and seriously placing you and 5000 others at risk while driving back home.
Shawerma places are great places to go to, not only because you'll be about to have the best fast food ever made to date, but also because each shawerma place has a hallmark which you'll not forget. In Shawerma Reem - Mojamma3 Jaber there are always cats going in (sometimes not going out ooops) and young boys walking barefoot even at 1 am and begging for money. Once I bought one of them a sandwich but he refused to eat it although he looked deah hungry, and said he only wants money, kinda makes you wonder who's sending this boy at 1 am to beg.
And when it's winter time, raining and the charmful weather broadcaster Jamal El Mousa abo 3yoon khothor expects "thulooj 3ala el mortafa3at foog el 850 meter methel mortafa3aat 3ajloon wal shobak", the best thing to do is walk inside Gerard ice-cream and the ice-cream man would expect you to either ask for a change or wal3a but you'd surprise him ...."ma3lesh beddi skooob Nutella" :) .... Well that was before their Sa7lab era.
At the moment snow is expected , people go into a "91-war mania" or "any 29 Shawwal mania" and rush into grocery stores to buy as much bread and fool el-kasee7 as they can, but I would be home laying my big cold ass on the heater while my toes are freezing. In schooldays we would be down on our knees praying that night " our dear Lord o pleeeease let it snow we don't wanna go to school tomorrow".
Amman sweet Amman :)
