Hi Tatyana,

Amazing job! smiley

I really want to visit Amaan now after reading your extract.

The breakfast looks amazing! What is all the food though? It is so different to the kind of things we have for breakfast in the UK haha!

Amman looks so bright and sunny in winter. I have not seen the sun (properly) in weeks and in Manchester (where I live) we hardly ever get nice, bright and sunny days. You're making me so jealous. How cold does it get in winter there?

How has Amman changed since the 1970s in your opinion? I imagine there are many more cars and tourists there nowadays. Is it safer to live in Amman nowadays?

I love going hiking in the mountains. Do many tourists go hiking in the mountains surrounding Amman?

With regards to your English, Faye has done an excellent job of evaluating it.

I just have the following comments

1. Downtown (Amman) is the old economic and commercial center of Amman from the beginning of the century until the beginning of the eighties.  / Downtown (Amman) has been the old economic and commercial center of Amman from the beginning of the century until the beginning of the eighties.

This food looks delicious Tatyana! Reading your post is making me so hungry now. (And I have just eaten hahaha). I absolutely love falafel and red-hot pepper sauce. Luckily (for me) they have started selling it a lot more now in shops in the UK. I spend a fortune on it haha!

I have a few questions

1.What is the makdos(stuffed eggplant) stuffed with? Presumably you stuff it with meat or some kind of fish?

2. What is "fateh"? From the picture you have posted, it looks so tasty. I wish I could go and eat it now haha

I am glad Jordan is now safe to visit nowadays! Where do most tourists stay when they come and visit Amman? Which places/hotels/apartments would you recommend staying in?
