Just when spring had sprung, talk of showers of rain had started pouring! That’s no reason to pout, stay in or get back in the winter spirit. On the contrary, let’s think of it as a way to say our final goodbyes to a beautiful winter; with all its shivers, days dreading to get out of bed during the cold and all those mugs of hot cocoa we’ve consumed. Let’s put on those rain coats for what we hope will be the last time, get ready for a little rain to wash away whatever dust has been laying around and enjoy the events that Amman has to offer us.
