Amman, Jordan – “God willing, it is still standing”


 

“God willing, it is still standing” – Anonymous Jordanian over a cup of coffee. 

The omnipresent gigantic Jordanian and Arab Revolt flags remind the obvious fact in this part of the world- Jordan is still standing strong. Among the almost-daily car bombs and fighting in Lebanon, barrel bombs and blurred frontlines of Syria, the Egyptian power play and the on-going plight of the Palestinians, Jordan finds itself as a beacon of stability.

Without questioning the ‘why’ and the ‘how’, the beauty of Amman leaves its visitor breathless (literally) in the volatile mix of sandstorms and heat.
