Minarets and Roman Ruins

Our first afternoon in Amman we took a taxi up to the Citadel for views of the city.  The seven hills of this Jordanian city are covered with both modern and ancient buildings.  The mix of minarets and Roman ruins, so exotic to a Californian like me, are commonplace all over the Middle East.  The amphitheater, built back in the days of Emperor Antoninus Pius, is still used today.  Unbelievable!
