Headed off to see the ruined city of Jerash. I decided to make it an adventure (and save about $10) by taking the local public transportation (27 fils, about $.40 each way). I managed (As usual) to get lost finding the bus station, so I had a nice lunch and figured out where I was. Got to the bus station, found the right line (I thought) and waited. I was in the right spot, what I was mistaked about was it being a line. As soon as the bus pulled up everyone rams for the door, it was a bit scary, but there were about 60 people waiting, and maybe 20 seats. I got on, and a soldier that I had asked directions from had even saved me a seat. 40 minutes later, Jerash!
Jerash is quite large, and very pretty. It's built on and around some low hills, and the entire area was covered with wild flowers. Honestly I enjoyed the flowers a lot more than the ruins (there are so many Roman ruins in the part of the world - it's like castles or churches in Europe). The highlight was walking down the Cardo (colunaded street) and realizing that it was still paved with the same stones that were lput down over two thousand years ago. Grooves carved by thousands and thousands of chariots were still very visable.
The bus back was not nearly as exciting (there were plenty of seats). Spent the eveing at the internet cafe adding flags to the pages.
