Amman Adventures

10 Jul

About 30 of us in the program managed to plan and execute a weekend trip to Aqaba (Jordan’s only sea port). Though we only spent a day there, it was well worth the 4 hr bus ride to relax, have fun and jump off a boat into the Red Sea. For a short while, it felt like any summer day in the U.S.

Last Wednesday we got to play with the boys at the Mabarrat Um Al Hussein (Mother of King Hussein Orphanage). We taught them games like duck, duck, goose and ninja and they kept us laughing and running around for hours.

My roommate Shannon made an American flag cake For the 4th of July. Since it fell on a Thursday (the weekend here), we all got to hang out, eat hot dogs, and celebrate America’s birthday together.
