Ramadan, the holy Islamic fasting month, can make life agonizing for foreigners. If you have the luxury of being invited by a local family for iftar (the fast-breaking dinner), go -- it can be an interesting cultural experience. But for me, coping with short business hours, irritated Jordanians, and having to wait all day for restaurants and food stands to open (I didn’t have the willpower to fast), took its toll. Night owls and party animals should also take warning: most bars and clubs shut down for Ramadan as Amman lulls into a deep, 30-day slumber.
