    Jordanian cuisine

    by pecsihornet Written Jan 20, 2007

    Mansaf is a pyramid of tangy aged yogurt or whey-drenched rice with a deflectable core of tender lamb chunks, garnished with toasted almonds. It is one of Jordan's most important dishes.

    When visiting Wadi Rum, we had a chance to see a beduin tent inside.
    Locals presented us some of their habits and costums.
    We had a great time there.

    If you are travelling through Jordan you'll be often invited by locals for a cup of tea. Don't decline! It is also understood as offense if you want to pay for it afterwards.

    The people love their king

    The people love their king. And the late king Hussein is still to be seen on posters everywhere. Kind Abdullah is equally loved. Many hospitals and schools are named after them.
