Winter break, Jordan - On the way north - 16 December 2007

 
 
 
We stop by a roadside stall on the way north to visit Umm Qays, Ajloun and Jarash, passing through Irbid and Yarmouk. The scenes in the photographs are of orchards/farmlands in the valley; growing oranges, apples, grapes, olives and tea.

We passed through Irbid, Jordan's 2nd largest city with a large university, Irbid University. In Yarmouk, we passed the area of the Battle of Yarmouk, where the Muslims led by Khalid ibn Al Walid were victorious against the Byzantine. Khalid ibn Al Walid later went on to conquer Al Sham (modern day, Syria) and establish an Islamic government and administration in Al Sham.
