Showing off the finished World Peace Day crafts project. Each flag was made by one of the students of our special education center.
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!
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.
Welcoming the beginning of summer's warm nights by setting up this stone and coal stove, and grilling some kebab.
