    Humeid, this is a great pic, I mean it totally describes Amman with all its facets.

    We got the modern cars, a whole spectrum of them, the great expansion of buildings and roads, the malls, the sophisticated business men with their suits and rolling briefcases… yet, we got the dirt roads, taxi cabs that are running since the 70s of the last century, and the poor housing of workers, especially the construction workers, the lack of urban organization…

    thanks for sharing!

    Bilal no Taxis from the 70s are still running! If you ahve been to Jordan ever, you’ll notice that all Services and Cabs are new, because of a law that was imposed 15 years ago.

    Is this the area near Roubina or The Sabe3 terminal?
    Then the photo could be: This guy is leaving Jordan for Good (though his luggage is for a businessman and he flies RJ!:D
