Springtime is gorgeous in Jordan. By and large the rains have stopped, the temperature is moderate, the hills and valleys are alive with color, and droves of city-folk flock to the countryside for picnics (or riHleh or mushwar as they are called here).
But, as they say a picture is worth 1,000 words . . . so here goes . . .
(This is a test of the new wordpress slideshow feature – hopefully it works.)
Of course this is less about testing the slideshow and more about showing people a bit of Jordan. I realized awhile back that we are the only ex-pats in our circle of friends that haven’t had visitors from back home since arriving here in Jordan. Most have averaged 3 or 4 in the last couple of years.
So here is a little bit of what you’re missing, and a not so subtle hint for you to start planning for next year’s Spring Break here in Jordan. Of course, we would be happy to receive you and show you around this country we love at any time of the year. Mushwar weather permitting of course! (There are around 20 pics in the slideshow and they cycle through in a minute or so)
