This happened to be the rainy months in Jordan. The sun was shining that morning and I discarded my umbrella but as soon as we were a few yards away from the hotel, it started to rain and did not abate at all the whole day. We went around Madaba in the rain. The great thing about this hotel which was in the old part of Amman is, besides being dirt cheap, they have tours to any place. Their staff has their own cars and are able to take you anywhere you want to go. The charge is pretty nominal. We hired this guy for the whole day to take us to Madaba. Food is quite cheap too. We had lunch in Madaba standing in the rain.
