  1. Jordan BBQ Night

    Welcoming the beginning of summer's warm nights by setting up this stone and coal stove, and grilling some kebab. 

  2. Jordan Patriotism

    Walking around with another volunteer, extra early on a Friday morning before the noon prayer so that there weren't enough people around to notice us whipping out our cameras, we ran into this young man in the souq, or market. He asked to have his picture taken under the Jordanian flag in exchange for some raspberry gum. Of course, we obliged. 

  3. Jordan Colorful Shopping

    Bright green duali, or grape leaves, next to deep purple koch, or plums, creates an aesthetically pleasing food shopping experience. Jordanian produce sellers know how to attract a customer!

  11. Jordan Standing alone, among many...

    One of the things the young women and I would do in my village was take walks through the rock fields. Away from the shabob (boys) we would sing and dance, gossip and laugh- really LOUD!
