I write this blog as a marginally informed observer. Throughout my time in the Middle East, my hope is that I will gain a more comprehensive understanding about the political, economic and religious aspects of this region, and more specifically, of Jordan. My personal thoughts, feelings and observations do not represent those of anyone but myself. While the work I am doing here will certainly serve to inform myself and my readers, the views I express are not necessarily representative of those expressed by my employer.
This trip is a learning experience, with a learning curve; I apologize in advance for any missteps I make in my observations, anything that I state as true which is in fact, not, and for any cultural insensitivity or disrespect inadvertently relayed in my writing. I assure you that it is entirely unintentional, and with your help, I would seek to rectify it immediately.
