This is the Al-Husseini mosque in Downtown Amman, one of the oldest in Jordan. Shadi insisted we pray there 2x, and afterwards I have no desire to. Its beautiful and in the center of a busy tourist trap, but as the women's section is no bigger than a walk in closet and scores of women had to wait to pray maghrib (including me) because there was no room I had to conclude that its existence was an afterthought and that pisses me off.
Scientific name: Anemone coronaria Family: Ranunculaceae English Common names: Anemones, Windflowers Arabic common name: shaka'ek al-No'man These are currently all OVER Jordan and one of the most common all spring. I love them and can't wait to pick them again when we hit Huwwarah on Friday's.
