Jordan: Museums and Dead Seas Scrolls

For our final day in Amman, we enjoyed the morning walking around the city. One of our most anticipated stops of the trip was the newly opened Jordan Museum which houses some of the infamous Dead Sea scrolls. It is absolutely enrapturing to see something so historic and influential to religion with your own eyes, but that can be said about all of our travels. If you are traveling to Amman, this would be well worth a short period of your time, as we did the entire museum in about 90 minutes, with reading everything.

Oh how I LOVE my arabic coffee!

We ended our time by walking a few kilometers (for the SECOND time of the trip) to Shawarma Reem. It is where the locals go for all of their shawarma needs and it is WELL worth the wait in line. They are small, so make sure that you order a few! Mmmm, I am now having a craving for it now that I am sharing this with you.
