Wow. Is amazing to see how the modern city surrounds the old remains of the temple and other structures! I'm impressed by the theatre and, as i told you, by the national flag!

The city is so huge!

Thanks, another place I want to visit in my life!

Hi @OSAMA Thank you for tagging me, and thank you for the AMAZING post.

Jordan is in the top of my wish list, and I will do my best to visit your country soon. Not only Amman, there are a lot of places that i want to visit.

Now I have to reveal a secret to you: My name is Ercole, the Roman Name that in English is Hercules. So I want to thank you for the third time. :)
