Life bros!

Life for a citizen of Jordan is much like that of America. Just 5 times they must bow and worship towards Mecca. Citizens of Jordan rise early so as to worship then continue on with their day. They do this several times. Farmers rise even earlier so as to see to their flocks. Workers in the cities are greatly more relaxed as the early part of the day is for family time and sending the children to school.
