Today I read the following:
…Unfortunately, pharmacy wildflowers are not the only thing you see along the highways and byways of Jordan. Black plastic bags are everywhere. A student told me in jest that the black bag carried by the wind is the national bird of Jordan and the white plastic bag is his mate [source]
I wonder if this is true…
Now usually I would insert an image that corresponds to the subject of this post. But I could not find on the Internet a picture of a Jordanian desert littered with black plastic bags. Then I thought of American Beauty. You know how in the movie that guy films the bag dancing in the wind? But once again I could not find a picture. So I went outside and tried to make a grocery bag break some moves but the wind only made it cling to my pant leg before speeding off down the street. I guess they used strings in the movie.
P.S. the Sinai Rosefinch is actually the national bird of Jordan
