After the mosque we went to the Citadel in Amman, or the ruins of the old Roman city that was built there. It's strange to be at a site full of ruins, and at the same time be surrounded by a modern city. But we found that to be pretty common practice in Jordan. We had a good time there and got to spend some time in a neat Archaeological museum there.

Next we headed to Jerash, an area in northern Jordan. On the way there, we stopped at the Jabbok River, known as "Peniel" in the Old Testament. It's the place in Genesis 32 where Jacob wrestles with an angel of the Lord, and where he is blessed and becomes Israel.
