Jordan Highlights

A few weeks ago we went to Jordan for a few days. Although it was dreadfully hot I still had a great time!

 A beautiful sunset on our first day 

The worst shower ever. Not only was the entire bathroom drenched when I was done, it lost water pressure right when I was shampooing my hair and turned off. Thankfully it came back on and I was able to rise the shampoo out of my hair.

Visiting the coolest place on Earth-Petra and riding a camel while there.

The city of Amman. It was almost like being back in North America

 In Amman the hotel folded my towel into a swan. I have to tell you guys about how crazy our hotel room was. We had the penthouse and it was huge! It had 3 bedroom, 3.5 bathrooms, living room, dinging room, and kitchen. All of this was wonderful except the air conditioning only worked in one room and the rest of the suit was uncomfortably hot. We called the front desk multiple times asking them to send someone to repair the air conditioner. We all felt relieved when someone knocked at our door and we rushed to answer it, but we were disappointed to find that it was only a hotel staff asking if we needed more towels. A few minutes later there was another knock at the door, this time was different another hotel staff bringing us more towels that we didn't need. At this point I decided that it was time for me to call the front desk. I called and kindly explained that our air conditioner was broken and the we had only been sent towels. I thought everything was going great until I relized that I had been hung up-on. 

The Jordan River. It was boiling hot there, but it was an awesome experience to stand on the shore of the river where Christ was baptized.
