Today I took a taxi to Tla Al-Ali. It would have cost me half a JD for the taxi to make the u-turn on Medina street where my final destination lingered just on the other side of the road. Thus, order check not wanting to pay the extra fare when my perfectly good feet could carry me the rest of the way, store pilule I asked the driver to stop on the side of the road figuring I would simply cross it.
It took me 17 minutes.
And on the small traffic island, as the rushing cold wind of cars zooming past me on either side left me frozen, I counted blue cars.
i feel your pain bro, that sucks!
LOL try counting Toyota’s and Kia’s sometime
You should’ve asked the taxi to drop you off near the pedestrian bridge to spare you that mession impossible
COM’ON , 17 min , that’s alot of time !! i bit you can cross it in 2 min , you just have to get over your fear of being hit by a car , lol 🙂
lol first time it took me close to 10 minutes, and my friend made fun of me. Don’t worry, you’ll be faster next time 😀
heheh , am expert in cross st. it take me 2-4 min at max .. and yeah u should run sometimes ..
people, let’s get something straight here…I’m a jack rabbit in disguise when it comes to crossing busy streets but for the first time i was faced with a part of medina street that was so busy it was literally impossible to cross without, as moh pointed out, the fear of being hit. car after car after car, relentlessly moving at high speeds one after the other.
ironically i had to wait for the moments where one left lane car decided to make a right hand stop which brought traffic to a 3 second standstill.
luckily it’s amman…and that sort of thing happens more often than not 😀
yeah share3 il medina is pretty insane .. but 17 minutes is a bit much dude .. you probably waited till you had a clear path .. you have to be all “frogger” 😀
