Jordan. No notions coming in.

Safe. Stunning. Handsome people. Charming. All I knew about it coming in was Indiana Jones, Petra and…well…was walking through massive Petra canyons, purples, reds, yellows and orange in various layers. Mostly violet hues. The faces. Authentic Bedouins. Tough negotiators all. And hard lives. But the faces.

But it’s that last guy, above,  I can’t seem to get out of my head.

“Where you from?”

“The US”

“America…I love America…Jordanian people love America. Jewish, Christian, Muslim, Buddhist don’t care. Please take message of peace back to your people. Tell them, please, what I say to you. Do not hate us, we want good life and work hard for little. Be kind to us too…”

Shukraan, Ahmad.
