"Get to know the people. I..." Jordan Favorite Tip by AldenM1

Jordan General: 177 reviews and 176 photos


Favorite thing: Get to know the people. I think Jordan is (or was, before the current political unrest) appended onto tours of Israel as a one-day afterthought of sorts -- Jerusalem, Petra, Eilat in one hurried circle. It's really too bad, because Jordan and the Jordanian people are much more than the dumping grounds for some Roman or Nabatean ruins. ==== This picture is of the post office in the village where I served. My father took it after an intensive bonding session with the mail guys. They were so excited to see him that we got about a million lunch invites while he was visiting!

Fondest memory: There's no way I can give you one 'fondest memory' of Jordan. All I can say is, I cried during the entire flight home, and there hasn't been a day since when I haven't been homesick for it.
