Amman is the capital of Jordan, and I spent a few days there while exploring Jordan and Israel. I stayed just north of the centre of the city, overlooking the main bus station - so I had a great view of all the activity there - it also made getting to other parts of Jordan very easy!
The centre of Amman is quite small, and easy to get around, but be warned the city is based on seven hills (Jebel's) so it might be easier to take one of the local yellow taxis - the good news is that you don't have to find them - just walk down a street, and any empty taxi will honk their horn to attract your attention.
It's at dusk that Amman becomes magical, the heat of the day is gone - the call to prayer starts from one mosque, and is soon joined by others near and far all over the city. The streets are lit by the headlights of cars, trucks, buses. Small shops spill their light on to the pavements, and the shop owners stand outside and wish you good evening.
