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 would have taken me FOREVER. And on top of that he ended up taking me to his home where I met his family and they fed me like a king. I felt really bad however cause it was ramadan so they watched me eat. I couldn’t say no so just stuffed myself instead. A couple hours later they invited me back to their house to eat ramadan dinner. I was already full from the late lunch they served but again I couldn’t say no so ended up stuffing my face again. Later he took me to go smoke hookah and hang out…I was definitely lucky to have met him. PS – the yogurt lemon drink in the photo was pretty bomb.
