21st March 2007 Mahmood, A Palestinian, The taxi driver
On the way back from Mount Nebo to Amman, Mahmood the taxi driver insisted that we stop by his house to meet his family. Mahmood is a born Palestinian, but has stayed in Jordan since his younger days. Now he earns a living by becoming a taxi driver. Usually he got extra earning by driving tourists (like us) to tourist sites in Jordan, mostly aroung Amman and areas nearby.
Mahmood is a very nice man, but like most Jordanians, he also smokes. Hurm.. on the way to Dead Sea and Mount Nebo, he smokes. At first I asked him not to smoke, but it seemed that along the way, he cannot stand not to smoke. Maybe by not smoking he felt sleepy... better not..he was driving.... ! So, we negotiated by asking him to open the window.
We stayed at his house about 1/2 hour.... we met his lovely wife, his 3 sons and his mother.
His sons are so cute... but one thing I couldn't stand to stay long.... his mother also smoked!!! Actually, I'm so used to be in a surrounding whom nobody smokes. My hubby doesn't smoke, my father doesn't smoke... but it seemed that everybody in Jordan smokes!!!!
Mesti laku kedai jual rokok kat sini....
After she served us tea, we excused ourselves since it is already 5pm. Then Mahmood drove us back to the hotel. On the way back to the hotel, we stop at one shop that sells Halawiyat, actually I suggested to Muhaini and husband to buy some to bring back to Malaysia. They are flying back to Malaysia tonight.
At the Halawiyat shop, they also sell cakes, couldn't resist taking the pictures, so colourful and yummy...but I cannot buy it since I cannot eat it alone...
just bought 2 pieces of halawiyat, tasted so creamy and sooo sweeeeetttt............ (I forgot it's name, maybe Asma' can remind me )
