Diplomatic Immunity

Diplomatic Immunity Photo of Ahmad smoking a hookah in Amman. So…how did I meet this fellow? When I was getting my visa for Jordan at the Jordanian embassy in Tel Aviv, I asked the guy behind the counter what was the best way to get to Amman was. The guy behind the counter was Ahmad. He told me that he could give me a ride since he was leaving the next day to go back home for the weekend in Amman. SWEET! Got a free ride from Tel Aviv to Amman which was awesome because since he also worked for the embassy, he had diplomatic immunity so crossing the border was as easy as apple pie. Had I done it alone it...
