Anyway, we got up in the morning, and I looked out the window a little nervous, because it looked AWFUL! Dark, cloudy skies, wet streets, CRAZY wind! Well, it is what it is, right? So we went down to breakfast and ate ourselves silly, then packed up and headed out. We were all bundled up and ready to walk.
My favorite part was haggling for camel rides. Last time we were there, they gave us 5JD camel rides. This time, when I walked up, they were saying they could only go as low as 10. I said no way! Five! They said no, so I just shook my head and bundled everyone off. They kept calling out numbers to me, and I told them no way--only 5! Finally, they gave in when they saw that I wasn't going to. Hey, we needed SEVEN camels. 35 JD is better than none, I'd think. Lame-o's.
The next morning, we decided to head back up to Amman and go to Thanksgiving dinner at our friends' house. So, we went back up the 'back way': The Kings' Highway. Devin thought it would be good to go to Karak Castle. It was supposed to take us only 2 hours to get there. It was almost 4 hours later when we pulled in there. Those small cities along the way were PAINFUL! One city took us 45 minutes to get through--and it wasn't very big! Horrible traffic. Bleh. But Karak Castle was pretty cool.
