Jordan and Peace Corps In the News

Aqaba, Jordan

Yesterday on CNN, which I wouldn’t ordinarily watch except that my new apartment doesn’t have BBC or Internet, there was a story about Jordan. Not the usual “Jordanian kills a bunch of people” story we’ve seen of late. This time it was a positive look at Jordan, specifically the Dead Sea Ultra Marathon and the rising popularity of physical exercise in Jordan, and especially in Amman. Nice to see.

Also, Mel found this article in yesterday’s Jordan Times that’s not just about Jordan, but specifically about Peace Corps in Jordan. Apparently it also appeared in Al Ghad newspaper in Arabic. Peace Corps Volunteers rock, and now all of Jordan knows it! =D
