Amman, Jordan.

Posted on

I arrived back Wednesday last 21st March from a very short stay in Jordan.

Myself and Colin Beggan had a great time – in spite of the cold (!!) and the costs incurred. Fortunately we clicked well and spent many’s an otherwise dull hour waiting for pick-up or sound-checks, recalling stories old and new – some of friends now gone – others we felt needed a push.

We were boomed into the Crown Plaza and very plush it was too. The beds were great – bathroom top-notch and breakfasts to feed an army. The only discord was the fact that I snore – a lot.  Allegedly.

The sky was changing every few minutes as several fronts came screaming over.

 

 

 

 

The temperature dropped from 6 C to -1C and then plummeted as snow and sleet lashed the marquee  we played in at the British Club compound within the walls of the British Embassy grounds.
