Direct Route to the Airport? Not Quite.

A taxi driver told me this week that the new Abdoun bridge connects to a road that runs straight through South Amman, directly to Airport Road. This is absolute bunk, as I discovered tonight.

I’m sure that eventually the road will connect as intended, but for the time being, it dumps you into a chaotic, detoured mess in the middle of South Amman.

For now, I recommend sticking with usual route of driving south from 7th Circle unless you are very familiar with the roads of South Amman.

Caveat viator (let the traveler beware).

Moey, thanks for the offer. My in-laws are in town visiting from the States, so I'll be a bit tied up for the next week and I'm afraid I must decline.

I like what you guys are doing. Hope you're having fun doing it.

Hey Dave, it's my first time here, but I'll take comfort in saying whatever i want to say "just kidding"

I remember fight club, when Edward Norton lost his luggage and the guy working at the airport told him it must be something "ticking", and most of the times that'd be a DI*DO...it was funny
