For the Thanksgiving break we drove to Jerusalem. It is so close to our house in Amman and yet so far away. It took us about 3.5 hours just to cross the border with Israel. From our door to our place in Jerusalem it took just over 5 hours. We could make it in about 1 and 30 minutes if it wasn’t for all the border crossing fun.
For our Thanksgiving dinner we crammed around a small table in a restaurant in the old city. We ate hummus, falafel, flat bread and more. It was fantastic! I didn’t miss a turkey at all (mostly because we did a traditional Thanksgiving dinner the week before). Unfortunately I don’t have any video footage from the dinner and all my photos were blurry. Trust me, it was awesome.
