Jordan was the last place to visit on a month long trip. We were feeling exhausted, but decided the two things we had to see was The Dead Sea and Jerash.....my husband spend the evening reading up on it. It was originally called Gerasa, which means in Greece, I have gotten old...which comes from the time of Alexander the Great. He left his older soldiers here, while he went with his younger soldiers to Persia. Can you tell my husband is Greek. Our taxi driver, Jacob, dropped us off with Micky, a young lady we had met at The Botique Hotel in Amman and Hani the Receptions just gets people to travel together to save costs...fantastic idea.....anyway we said good bye to Jacob and he said he would pick us up in two hours...but once we saw how huge the ruins were we realised we were going to be a bit late. Its an absolutely amazing stroll through the most wonderful ruins...you could just close your eyes and imagine how it was. We visited in Feburary, so the weather was just perfect for strolling...in the end we managed to do it in 2 1/2 hours...but once we got back to the entrace, we found Jacob having coffee in the coffee bar....absolutely no stress....We only paid 12JD return each, which was 36JD for the 3 of us..of course Jacob would prefer to have 4 in his car....but we were there out of season..so was he very happy and so were we.
