On Saturday morning Lila and I will be taking a boat across the Gulf of Aqaba, at the top of the Red Sea, to the country of Jordan. For those of you who don’t know much, if anything, about Jordan – this is a really cool intro video about the country and its young king. If you’re interested, there are four more parts to this series that you can find on YouTube by clicking here.
Other interesting facts about Jordan:
-Due to its more liberal social and political social leanings, Jordan has a reputation as being the Switzerland of the Middle East.
-The king of Jordan was educated in the United States. His mother was British.
-Jordan is a monarchy
