    Amman Things to Do

    Given that Amman spreads itself over so many hills (19 now, 7 for centuries before that) it's not really obvious why this particular one should have been chosen as the location for the city[s most ancient structures. It isn't any higher than the hills immediately surrounding it and, as far as I could see, there nothing particularly special about...

    Beit Matbouli is one of the few traditional houses in Old Jeddah (al Balad) open to the public. It was recently converted into a 'museum' but it is not quite so.

    In the numerous trips to the Petroglyphs or Canyonland areas, one passes grazing camels. These animals can be quite large, and in colors ranging from white to black. They are intelligent animals that are usually quite friendly, but not particularly interested in the visitor. Camels don't bread naturally and need the help of their caretakers to do...

One time teachers from the American School and ourselves celebrated Thanksgiving in the Canyon Lands. Traveling time is about an hour on the highway until...

    Jerusalem Things to Do

    The mountain ridge east of the Old City is the Mount of Olives, named after the olive groves that used to cover its slopes in the past. The highest point is at-Tur (818m). I was surprised there are no buildings there but then I read that the ridge is full of soft chalk which is very weak for safe construction. We took bus 75 (one way ticket for...

    Run by the Crown Plaza Hotel in Wadi Musa, Basin Restaurant is one of two dining option in the Petra archaeological site. Come lunch hour, it is infested with groups of tourists and thus scores zero in terms of atmosphere and no better on service. The redeeming factor is that the buffet and grill it serves are surprisingly decent (normally I avoid...

    The place is supposed to serve authentic shakshuka - a layer of spiced tomatoes and peppers with poached eggs on top of it. What was served was tomatoes/peppers with one egg mixed into it and the other one, still raw (!), on top of it. Service was rude and the bill was too high (they charged more than what was written in the menue). Upon...
