Just after landing, we drove to Jerash with our rental car. We soon realised that Jordanians have their own driving rules...

It took us 2 hours to visit the ancient city very well preserved. We walked around the different sites: Racecourse, Theatre, Oval Forum, Cardo Maximus, etc. It is an opportunity to learn more about the History of this region.

It is a very good introdution to Jordan!

We decided to stay in Madaba, said to be more chill than Amman. We ate our first falafels ultra crunchy et drank a fresh pomegranate juice.

We also visited a few churches, Madaba is the biggest christian city of the country. We discovered in those ones amazing Byzantine's mosaics which the oldest was from the 1st century BC.
