Boab Sammy

In Jordan, each building has its own caretaker called, Boab's.  These guys supervise the building and help maintain the cleanliness of it.  Our Boab, Sammy takes out our rubbish, cleans our car and waters our plants on the front porch.  We pay a fee once a month for this service.  Our Boab, Sammy is a lovely man from Egypt (they are all mostly from Egypt).  He is the sweetest thing and so kind to Ayla.


  1. Hey Michelle and Robert. Great blog really enjoyed it. I'm an Irish lad in a predicament. Currently living in Wexford. I've travelled to quite a few places and would love the chance to pick your mind about Jordan as I've been offered a job there today. If you could get back to me that would be super. My email I actually use is just drop me and email if you can spare 5 minutes to chat. Thank you :)
