A Blog from Amman, Jordan, Online Since 2004.

“Sixty Springs in Your Glory, oh, Jordan!”

That’s so slogan they’re using to celebrate Independence Day on University Street, my literal translation of “ستين ربيعا في مجدك يا أردن”.

Sixty springs- what a fascinating way to put it, especially as spring has so many symbolic meanings. Sixty years of flowery hills and clear blue skies after a winter. Sixty years of a new beginning. Sixty years of spring under the Jordanian sky.

Above is my favorite view of Amman, a representation of cultural and historical diversity, hills, and the bluest blue.

Happy Independence Day, Jordan, with much, much love.
