The kingdom of Jordan has been in the news a lot lately for it’s role in the humanitarian crisis coming from Syria. Jordan is a relatively small country with a population of 6 million yet is currently sheltering almost a million refugees and asylum-seekers. This has been heavily taxing on the Jordanian economy but the people have responded to the needs of the Syrian people.
When I was there, I drove through the Wadi Rum desert where T.E. Lawrence had fought during the Arab Revolt against Ottoman rule. It is a beautiful country with incredibly kind and hospitable people.
