“I see my path, but I don’t know where it leads. Not knowing where I’m going is what inspires me to travel it.” – Rosalia de Castro
I arrived to Amman, Jordan on 27 September and since then I have been interning for an international organization. I will be doing field research in Zimbabwe and Rwanda, so I have been preparing myself for this.
Apart from work I do here, so far, I am enjoying myself. Lovely people and huge amounts of daily food. Beef, chicken, lamb, pita bread, hummus, labaneh, olives, halva and many more.
On my second night in Amman, I have been to “Levant” for dinner.One of the best restaurant in Amman with dishes representing all of the Lebanese, Syrian, Palestinian and Jordanian culture, and also featuring an authentic Armenian cuisine.
I don’t feel like a stranger here, thanks to the food and to the weather 🙂 I love the breakfast, especially. 3-4 different types of cheese, fresh tomatoes, cucumber, olives, nice bread, tea, yoghurt, fruits… can’t ask for more.
For lunch, as the working staff, we order food from outside. Huge variety, great amounts of food. And its all about beef, lamb and chicken. Hard to find something vegetarian. This is how one of the meetings rooms in the office look like around 1.30pm 🙂
One day, I had something similar to “Qoozi”. Dough stuffed with lamb, rice and vegetables. It came with yoghurt and salad, perfect for Sev!
My Amman experience; so far so good. This time I wasn’t able to do much sightseeing in Amman but I will be coming back to Amman soon (after 20 days). And when I come back, I am hoping to focus more on touristic attractions rather than the cuisine 🙂
