Tawjihi is the Jordanian Highschool Leaving Certificate, and it’s apparently so tough that only 55% of this years round of students from the humanities division passed.
Luckily, to the great happiness of the entire family, my cousin Abed passed (mabrook habeebi), which called for celebration the Jordanian way, getting into cars and beeping the heck out of the horns, although it’s both rude and “illegal” (my job as I’m the car owner).
The first place that popped into my mind was Abdoun Circle, the default place to go beep and spin, spin, spin, but unfortunately, Abdoun Circle is closed this summer. The next best thing was Abdoun Mall, as the Blue Fig Circle is closed as well (damn that bridge, when are they going to finish it? And wow, I’m in such an un-eloquent mood).
And you know, I don’t care if it’s uncivilized, dangerous, and rude, I think it’s awesome.
