Roman citadel, Amman
Friday 30 November: Not a whole lot to see in Amman just the Roman amphitheatre, Hashem Restaurant (which serves a delicious traditional humus and falafel meal for just 2JD) and the tall columns of Amman Citadel overlooking the sprawling city. The Palace Hotel (10JD B&B) is all you would expect of a cheap hotel in a large Arab city, but it's clean and friendly so worth a mention, not least, because they also give you a free lift to Madaba, my next destination, and a better room for the same price in their plusher sister hotel there. Slideshow of Amman.
