|Celebrating in the street|
Following that, we went to Annie's house on the eastern side of town. From her rooftop terrace we watched fireworks and crowds of people in the city. I have only been a resident of Jordan for a few weeks, but I’m loving it so far. The people are friendly and welcoming, the food is delicious, the markets are lively, and it isn’t even that unbearably hot (yet!). So today I salute this great country and its independence!
