Middle East Home

Once again I find myself in a position of playing catch up. Since my last feeble attempt to bring friends and family up to date we have been through three countries, and we are currently visiting the fourth. Our time here, for Karen at least, is more than just a visit. Karen is here in Jordan working on a project sponsored by USAID for the Jordanian Securities Commision. So while Karen toils tirelessly trying to help cement relations with one of the few tentative friends we have in this part of the world, I find myself running out of excuses for my lethargy. So in the days to come, I will try to keep those of you interested up to date with our evening and weekend excursions in Jordan, and who knows, maybe I'll even get the ambition to go back and fill in some of the gaps about Thailand, Laos, and Malaysia.
Stranger things have happened. If we get that far, maybe I can go into why--after nine-and-a-half months we decided to foresake the motorcycles. For now though, this page will serve as Home for our time in Jordan.
The "Home" button at the the bottom of the page will take you back to the SapoyRana main page where you can get to other various directories.
Keep an eye opened for links back to those missing countries--and yes, I remember that I've also left some big gaps in the area of the west coast of India, but come on, it was the beach, let's try to maintain some reasonable expectations.
