Blog For Jordan Day

What are the hardest things to be achieved in Jordan? Real hard things that you will be feeling some sort of beyond the happiness feeling when you accomplish them? Well..Besides Tawjihi that would be getting your driving license..

It took me a full year to have it.. I took the writing exam 7 times.. In both old-school way -the bubble sheet- and the new way -the touch screen one- which is by the way much easier than the old one..
Getting failed as a result each time in the exam made me very angry to get back to the Department of Drivers and Vehicles Licensing and take a new appointment..

When it came to the Behind the wheels -which is supposed to be easier- I took it in the third time :)
Now it has been a year and a half of me driving my lovely car Paris -my car's name-.. And just like anyone I love driving around the block,, I enjoy that more than driving around in Abdoun :)

One of my favorite streets that I really enjoy driving on is Ibraheem Al-Qattan Street.. The parallel street to Abdullah Ghosheh.. There is nothing specific in why I love that particular street.. Maybe 'cause it is a relaxing thing to drive in your own neighborhood.. You are used to the roads and know how to avoid the ones with lots of bumps..

On Ibraheem Al-Qattan you can find Khan Murjan Turkish Bath, the Saudi Students Association,, the Department of Drivers and Vehicles Licensing,, Sudanese Embassy,, Mariam Gallery,, Al-Jeel Al-Jadeed Club and Circassian Charity Association..

My second favorite one is Zahran Street.. To be more exact the part from the second to the fourth one.. I love the view there and I really feel peacefulness while I drive on it..

Having my driving license for all that long.. Yesterday I only knew how I can go to Al-Waibdeh.. My brother spent half an hour explaining and drawing drafts for me so I can get it and don't get lost in directions..

Now I can enjoy all the numerous activities that are happening there which I couldn't attend previously,, and I can finally go to Abu-Mahjoob Co. to get Jordan Super Hero T-Shirt xD the famous Jordanian caricature character..
Besides Abu Ma7joob.. There is also this funny and creative 3alarasi web site.. This site is fascinating even my sister -who lives in Dubai- is addicted to it and checks it daily to get her daily giggling dose on their hilarious videos and caricatures..

Now it is Spring here.. Spring in Jordan is amazing here are some of the pictures that I took on our home garden..

This year I am honored to be participating in ''Blog For Jordan Day''.. Oh Jordan If I started talking about how much I love you and how grateful I am for being here..Living in this precious Jordanian society.. That conversation would never ends..

Here is a link to "Amman" by "Omar Al-Abdallat" so now you can enjoy relooking closely at the pictures while listening to it :)

As this post has been posted..Now I will be at my aunt's house to have lunch with the whole family.. And since the weather this week is fabulous we will be having it at their backyard to enjoy the brilliant weather and the pretty flowers’ odor..
