Apart from Supermarkets, no shops are opening before 2pm - and that are the malls only, the rest remain completely shut on Fridays. So in the beginning of the afternoon we took the car. We needed to do some grocery shopping. That consists of at least 2 different supermarkets. But before that we had to leave our street and we got stuck; not because of road works or kids playing on the middle of the road, but more some kind of traffic jam. The only thing being that the cars were not moving - like nobody at the wheel not moving! We hit the midday Friday prayer. Cars were parked, and double parked, leaving only just enough space for one car to slalom in between. Well until the car in front of us stopped. The driver waited, so we waited. The driver got fed up waiting, so did the obvious thing: he got out, closed the car and joined the rest of the men praying. We had 2 choices: either wait and get caught in a massive mess with all the cars wanting to leave at the same time or reverse. We chose the obvious: reversing.
The Mosque in our street
On each side of the cars, men rised after their prayer
One stop at City Mall and Carrefour to buy fish and one stop at Cozmo to buy fruits, vegetables and yogurts for Bibs. And then a new discovery... we stopped at Korean Gardens. No, no, unfortunately I haven't suddenly discovered a new garden where I can walk with Bibs. It is a Korean Supermarket and a paradise for noodle eaters, like Bobs.
There is a restaurant over the supermarket - they do not do take-aways (must be the only restaurant in Amman!)
As usual I update the map at the bottom of the main page.
