    Die römischen Ruinen von Jerash

    March 31, 2019 in Jordan ⋅ 🌧 11 °C

    Was für eine gewaltige Stadt! Ehrfurcht und Staunen. Alles ist noch so gut erhalten, dass man sich lebhaft vorstellen kann, wie einst die wohlhabenden Bürger Roms hier wandelten. Theater, Pferderennbahn, Gladiatorenkämpfe ...Read more

    Jerash (South Theatre)

    November 19, 2018 in Jordan ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    The last attraction of the site is the South Theatre, where some bagpipe-players entertain us. The music sounds to me more Scottish than Middle Eastern but it still creates a nice atmosphere. I walk up to the last row of seats of the theatre that offers a breath-taking view over the archeological site, the modern city of Jerah and the surrounding desert.

    After a 2-hour long visit we finally have a break and I decide to visit again the bazar, where i have my first session of souvernir shopping. Everybody is extremely friendly and an artist shows me how he creates some beautiful sand drawings in bottles. I still have some tien before the bus departs and I go to a café to drink a mint tea. A make friends with some locals, including the bus driver of a group of German tourists... He must be our driver! We take a selfie and post it in our WhatsApp group ☺️

    It's almost 2pm and I run to the bus... Just to realise it's the wrong one. When I finally find my group everybody asks me who is the guy in the selfie I posted. Well, apparently he was not our bus driver in the end... Maybe one day I will learn how to recognise people 🙄
