Australia to US via Sri Lanka and Jordan (and Israel)?

I'm flying back to the US from Australia at the end of February, and decided to take advantage of some cheap flights and stop through Sri Lanka along the way. I've always wanted to see a bit of the middle east as well. Coincidentally, there are some cheap flights to Amman from Colombo. How should I split my time and (very limited) budget to maximize this trip? [more inside]

What was this Sri Lankan Peppercorn?

At a local Sri Lankan festival a few months ago I had what I thought was a fresh black peppercorn - it was a small black ball, smooth on the outside with a bit of salt coating it, and distinctly juicy. A guy was selling little glass jars of them. I think he recommended I put one in my Lion beer. I tried looking up fresh black peppercorns, but apparently they turn black as part of preparation and I can't find anything like this online. I did find peppercorns in salt in a bottle, but they were definitely green. Am I misremembering this, or is this standard food item of some kind?
