There are many wonders to discover in Jordan. The picture above gives you a glance at it and you can find information and more photos on my Jordan Destination Guide. However this post is dedicated to small wonders I discovered from the car along the Jordan roads. I hope they will make you smile too.
The road signs
A classic pleasure while on the road in a foreign country is spotting road signs that you never see where you live. I just love them: Leopard in Namibia, Koala, Kangaroos or cassowaries in Australia and … Dromedaries in Jordan!
This is not Namibia or another South African country where you can spot wild animals along the road eveywhere, but it is quite fun to spot dromaderies while on a boring drive along flat dry land.
For this one I do not have a picture but I was simply shocked when I saw it.
I saw a young boy sweeping the floor in front of a building. Said like that, nothing special. However it was next to a road where cars were driving fast and in the dusty desert… I let you imagine… You know how sometimes we think: ‘why make our bed in the morning as we will reuse it anyway at the end of the day’, well here, it is even worse because with every car driving by, the dust comes back! A never ending job…
And the unexpected
Here is the thing that I was really not expecting to see in Jordan. It makes sense but tornadoes are not something I normally associate with that country. However I spotted sand tornadoes on my way to the desert castles. Look at the picture, see it?
