    This is officially my first Jordanian rant. I'm frankly not that upset. And since you're reading this, the issue has been resolved. Thank god for unsecured wireless networks!

    So, interestingly after spending like 45 minutes in Abdoun, I gave up. And went to the Swaifyeh Starbucks. Why do I go to Starbucks, because I wanted to enjoy a cup of coffee while I write a nice little blog entry!

    After many attempts turns out, this is not the place to actually be! And there appears to be a problem! Yes, they screwed up, leading me to get really upset. Not only that, they didn’t have cards (prepaid) on site!

    So To recap, I am already a Tmobile customer (The company that provides the hotspot access all over the world) and I was guaranteed I’m going to have access anywhere in the world

    Upon talking to the supervisor, I got the “There is a connection is down”. Of course I don’t buy it!

    Anyway, to cut a long story short, I’m pissed off. I couldn’t get to the Abdoun Starbucks and I can’t browse the Internet here. The sad part is that I was really looking forward to doing this.

    I had so much to say, and so many social observations that will lose freshness the longer I stay here, so I better capture them while they’re still vivid in my mind! God this sucks!

    Anyway, Sweifyyeh has some serious foot traffic and we’re only talking 3:30 PM here, I wonder how it would be during rush hours! I am sure it is very active!

    And the adventure, continues

    I think I've posted about Starbucks Abdoun before, where can't remember.

    I've said: Their internet connection never works, don't even bother, even if the guy downstairs tells you it works!

    It has been down for at least 2 years now and I dare anyone to prove me wrong.
    lol, seems to be you haven't paid Amman a visit for a very long time ;)
    welcome back :) and i hope that you'll enjoy your stay :)
