Right a new day and more things to see. It was off to Jerash by local bus today that was surprisingly easier to get than expect, a quick taxi to the bus station then a bus ride to right outside Jerash's ruins. Alot to see there with plenty of Roman Ruins to look at. It must have been a big city as it had 2 Ampitheatres. The whole area is nicely cordoned off so that the modern city doesn't start over taking it. I'll let the photo's do the explaining...

Getting back to Amman wasn't as easy as the buses didn't seem to be running back being that it was a Friday but after avoiding the rip off taxi's I got a lift back with a local driver who oddly was playing Barbie Girl amongst other songs on the way back. Also fortunately I got dropped at the Citadal in Amman for a great view over the city. After a little walk around there it was down to my third Ampitheatre that day (this one is in Amman) and on to a restaurant to have Mansaf for dinner.
