Introduction Here's a blog about my experiences living and teaching in Amman, Jordan. It's been one year since I arrived and it's honestly been one of the toughest, most challenging and yet rewarding and fun years of my life. I would do it all over again. One year ago, I packed up my bags and hopped on a plane. I had no long term path, only short term goals. Nobody was really surpised at my decision to move to the Middle East. Some surely thought I was off my rocker. Some thought it was cool. Some thought it would be an adventure. Some just didn't get it. Read all about the sometimes mundane, sometimes adventure filled, hilarious journey in Amman!
Interests dancing, reading, cooking, street food, learning new things, games, new food and music, being with interesting, funny people, traveling and finding the quickest way to get water to my apartment.
Favorite Music Hip Hop, funky stuff like MIA, Gypsyish like Balkan Beat Box and various Middle Eastern music.
Favorite Books The Thirteenth Tale, Not For Sale, Safe Area: Gorazde, Fools Rush In, Shutterbabe, Confessions of an Ecomonic Hitman, Palestine, Persepolis I, Persepolis II, Embroideries, The Alchemist, Blink, Laughing Without an Accent
