how deep do these trees go…
Light, topography and these concrete blocks – a true ammani story really!
Honestly, views like this are the beauty of Amman. Houses perched on hills, bustling people, I really love this.
Lucky you, with green trees still! Everything is brown here in Virginia…
I sure miss Amman’s topography… the way the city can look at itself from so many different balconies and viewpoints, and I miss the winding roads that go up and down… heck… I miss driving in Amman!!
Lina…unless new york swallows you whole and you go awol on us…the streets of amman will be waiting for you and your civic.
(just avoid the off-roading stunts )
Maybe its the nice makeup-free view of our beloved Amman that encouraged me to (finally) write something out on this blog, knowing that I should’ve said: “thanks Nas for sharing your thoughts with us” ages ago, but I’ll (once again) blame it on my “I-like-to-listen” (in this case “read”) attitude.
Loads of interesting articles, and not-surprisingly interesting comments all over, keep it up Nas, God bless.
I enjoyed the same views yesterday, driving around town on errands. These late fall days in Amman have such a quality of light, air and energy. The recent rains washed everything clean and the place shines. I fall in love with Amman again every new season. It’s an injection of optimism. Going up and down the hills, I ask myself, how to turn this feeling into something tangible? Still thinking of that but decided it’s OK to enjoy the moment. And I did!
Thanks for sharing it with everyone.
in the spirit of first time comments heres minei think that the fakest thing is to feign adornment and surprise whenever a person form amman looks at pictures of down town. i hate these kids who are snapping pics of down town and document their visit by saying oh my god it is so cute and beautiful. i am so cool and different that i visit down town and have to tell everybody about it. it is as if you are pretending to be a tourist in ur own country
I don’t see the abu mahjoob cafe!
reminds me so much of jerusalem.. i had fun in amman..
