3/30/2007 Aqaba - Amman - Madaba 40 km 300 t.a.g.
We take a modern bus from Aqaba to Amman. 340 km are just 5,50 JD (6,- Euro). The last stage to Madaba is pretty relaxed, despite the endless rows of cars out of Jordan´s capital. We cycle the first 5 km on the emergency lane, but no one seem to care.
After one week in the desert we enjoy the green fields around here. On the side of the road many weekenders play football or gather around a barbecue. In Madaba we have a last dinner of falafel sandwiches and we move into a new room in the Mariam Hotel, the best one during this trip.
On Saturday morning we fly back to Germany with Royal Jordanian. When we arrive in Frankfurt the sun is shining and trees are blooming. What an unforgettable trip!
