Our new friends invited us to an "Arabic party" which turned out to be some live music at a cafe in the new/modern part of Amman which was about a ten minute taxi ride away from the old city. It's very much like an outdoor mall complete with McDonalds, Burger King, Starbucks, Waffle House, but also a bunch of retailers that I'd never heard of. It's the "wealthy" part of town.
Here's the cafe we went to. We hung out on the rooftop - which meant climbing several flights of stairs.
It was a pretty trendy place.
This is the view of the outdoor mall below.

Four bucks gets you a seat, a water, a dessert and a platter of chick peas, corn, and some other thing. For a little extra, I got a strawberry smoothie. Mmm!!!
From left to right: their "French friend"- Rosalynn, the hotel owner - Star, me, Rishma, and John.
We had to ride in a specific taxi because we're foreigners.
We had a fun night and have been blessed with nice people to hang out with.
