We set out for a city tour this morning, riding by bus through this very modern town of tall glass buildings, wide streets, and broad sidewalks. We can tell from the amount of sidewalk cafes and restaurants, they the weather here must be beautiful for much of the year.
We we are off to visit three cities in South America. We will be going to Chile, Argentina, and Brazil by way of Gate1 Tours.
It was a quick flight from Oakland to LAX and then a ten hour flight to Santiago, Chile. We arrived at 5:15am but we’re so happy that our hotel had our room available immeditely so we didn’t have to hang out in some wee hour of the morning coffee shop sleeping over a breakfast roll on a tiny table waiting for the hotel check in time. More to come after we get some sleep!
We are in Amman, the largest city of Jordan, its economic and cultural center. It is also one of the oldest cities on planet Earth, going back to the Stone Age. We are talking about people living here 6500 years BC! The houses are built on top of old ruins.
