Why do Jordanians plant which I believe are olive trees on the pavement in front of their homes? My neighbours on my street have them and almost every inner street I know have them. Hence walking on the pavement becomes extremely difficult. People are actually forced to walk on the road, which in the UK is called ‘jaywalking’. Incidentally ‘jaywalking’ on the road without appropriate reason is a criminal offence in the UK.
When I first came to Jordan, walking on the road rather than a designated pavement was so weird and I would find I would feel at odds walking on the road while the cars whiz by you.
Just a thought from my curious mind 🙂
