Cities ancient and (relatively) modern

I love the juxtaposition of the modern city of Amman viewed through the ruins. This is western Amman, the older part of the modern city, mostly undistinguished concrete blocks stacked up the steep hillsides. Eastern Amman, where my hotel is, looks much more like a typical modern city. (I can even see a McDonald's from my room.)
