Inside the Middle East

Aqaba, Jordan

Aside from rather dubious statement that “Amman, Jordan, is one of the oldest cities in the Fertile Crescent,” considering that it was a negligibly tiny village for most of history, this week’s Inside the Middle East on CNN told the story of the West Amman that I’m really going to miss. Featuring Duinde Gallery and a fairly candid discussion with Jordan University students, I found it quite enjoyable.

I also liked the stories about the Muslim comic book series “The 99” and the Tuareg Saharan blues band Tinariwen.
