30 miles north of Amman is Jerash. It is an old Roman city. It really is famous, and yearly thousands of tourists come there to visit tho old Roman leftovers which a situated there. Or, better put, it is an intire old city there witch churches, a Forum, the Tetrapylon, Hadrian's arch, a circus hippodrome, two immense temples. If you love old culture, this city is really amazing! The Romans conquered in in 69, and the Roman emperors Trajanus and Hadrianus build an intire city. It has some much Roman temples and sightseeings, the city is nickmnamed "Asian Pompeii".
Dinner is no problem there, so before we went for a walk in the sun for a few hours, wich you need, it was time to dinner in front of the city.
After this day we went back to Amman, must people tired. After dinner, half stayed in the hotel to take the necesarry rest. I could not resist to visit Amman at night. We took a bus to the centre. It was really surprising how nice the people treated us there. The people made room for us on the crowded terrace to give us tea and the world famous waterpipe which I very much liked! After midnight we went to our beds. Tommorow we go to worldwonder Petra.
