I know, I know: I'm neglecting this little blog of mine.
But my parents are here, as you know, and they're running me ragged. We've been to the baptism site and Jerash. We've been through a protest, albeit accidentally ("Look, mom and dad! Guys with banners and guns hanging out of trucks! Welcome to Jordan!"). We've been to the school Talent Show, at which Shay juggled. We've been to Mt. Nebo, Madaba and Rainbow Street. We've eaten more falafel than I can possibly count. We're leaving shortly for Petra and Aqaba, then back again briefly for an Arabic cooking class before driving to Jerusalem and the Dead Sea.
I'll be back soon with pictures and loads of witty anecdotes, I promise.
