The Stela of Balua

This is a photo of the Stela of Balau, which I took from the museum in the Karak Castle. I have been there this morning. My big impression about this visit was “Shame”. Yes, shame. The way the employees were acting, workers who are doing repair to the castle shouting and laughing as if they were in a back city street. The working women in the museum who were eating …

A Walk through History

At almost 16:15 this afternoon, the electricity went off causing me to start my daily trip earlier than the usual time which is 17:00. I wore the Sport Pajamas pantaloon that Umm Asad brought to me on the Tawjihi results, and a black shirt which seemed very (cool) to me.
