Journal Entry:
Woke up to pouring rain. Opted to put off the ruined city of Jerash until tomorrow hoping for better weather. Spent the morning in the hotel reading. The rain let up a little so I spent the afternoon walking around downtown Amman (seeing the Roman theater and Odeon, visiting the tourist office, etc.). It started to rain so I set out to find the Internet cafe (with directions from the hotel). The streets of Jabel Amman are impossibly convoluted and I spent over two hours in the rain looking before I paid a guide one dinar to show me (I never would have found it on my own, it was $1.50 well spent).
