Abdali and the Fleas

This morning we made the epic journey to Abdali, an area of Amman that houses a weekly Friday morning flea market. And this thing is the biggest thing you have ever not seen. It’s like Goodwill on steroids, except outdoors and cheaper. We were in thrift shop heaven…as Nina said, all the hipsters at her school would have orgasmed on the spot. (Sorry for the vulgarity, but it’s pretty accurate.) I came away with quite the haul – we’re talking 5 dishdashes (traditional garb), 4 sweatshirts, a t-shirt, a scarf, and a winter coat all for less than 40 JD. And I only made it halfway through the place. Just wait till next Friday, when Operation Sweater commences.
