It’s fitting because this week we’re hosting our first visitor to Amman: our friend Lisa, whom we met in Afghanistan.amman, jordan, foreign service housing, house tour, guest bedroom, beforeIt’s quite an upgrade from the twin bed that was in there before.Since we have our own headboard, mattress and boxspring for the master bedroom, we were able to move the Embassy-provided queen bed from the master bedroom into the guest bedroom, and the twin bedroom from that room into the office/second guest bedroom.amman, jordan, foreign service housing, house tour, guest bedroom, beforeGuest bedroom, before.amman, jordan, foreign service housing, house tour, guest bedroom, afterGuest bedroom, after.Of all the rooms in our apartment, this is probably the one I’m least satisfied with in terms of decor. It’s sort of just a mishmash of random things — all of which we like, but none of which exactly go together. But, for a comfortable (and free!) place to stay for our guests, it’ll do. amman, jordan, foreign service housing, house tour, guest bedroom, afterWe have some photos and a map of Washington, DC; some furniture and decorations from El Salvador; a mask from Honduras; and tapestries from Afghanistan and Cambodia. If nothing else, it’s international!amman, jordan, foreign service housing, house tour, guest bedroom, afterThe guest bathroom is at the end of the hallway, just outside the master bedroom.amman, jordan, foreign service housing, house tour, guest bathroom, afterI can’t say I love the bathroom tiles and general setup either (pedestal sinks with no storage underneath), but there’s little we can do about that. There’s some shelving on the side that’s out of the frame, but I don’t like having toiletries and other bathroom items on display. I’ll ask Lisa to provide a full review after her stay!What are your holiday travel plans?Check out previous Jordan House Tour posts: foyer & living roomkitchen & dining room and family room. Also see my Kabul house tour and San Salvador house tour.
