The North of Jordan

Just got back from seeing the Roman ruins in the north of Jordan, in the cities of Irbid, Um Qais, and Jerash. I’m a sucker for ruins and in general ancient architecture, so the trip was a treat. Jerash is all rolling green hills and yellow flowers, speckled with columns and temples and ancient little houses. Our guide told us that it’s estimated about 70% of Jerash is still buried, and we saw giant columns that you could climb on top of because they’re mostly under the earth. I can’t really describe how beautiful it is up there, in a totally different way than the south of Jordan, so I’ll let the pictures do the talking.

Hell yesss


Temple of Adonis

Basically the entire trip was one long “I can’t believe I’m getting credit for this” moment.
