A Blog from Amman, Jordan, Online Since 2004.

On October

Last night, we were sitting at a place we visit often and we noticed that the huge bright lime-green Omnya banner that has hung on the building across all summer is gone, replaced by an equally gigantic but quite morbid image of a parliamentary campaigner, complete with the evil look and all.

As we sat and stared silently, the street much emptier than usual, it really felt like the campaigner’s serious eyes have signaled the end of summer and the beginning of winter. I do not really like winter much, I get gloomy and pessimistic as the leaves start falling.

But well, winter hasn’t really started, October is now done and Amman is still seeing 30 degree weather.
