We had a fantastic time wandering around and exploring everything. Tourism in Jordan is still pretty young, so not much is fenced off yet. You can actually strike out on your own to explore, and climb around on things that will undoubtedly be closed to the public before too long. =)
As usual, we hired a driver from Amman, and he stayed with us for the whole day as well as gave us a bit of a tour. Instead of paying to go on a guided tour, we payed the usual admission fee and had our own private tour guide, who was able to tell us just about everything we ever wanted to know about Jerash. I don't know if we just lucked out and got a history buff as our cabby, but he was fantastic.
Unfortunately, I dropped my camera at some point and it refused to take pictures for the rest of the day. What little I have from Jerash and Ajloun (see next entry) was pilfered from Kaia and Damon, my travel-mates.
