Solomon's friend: first name Jack; last name. . . ?
Towards the end of a five-month solo trip through Europe and the Middle East in 2011, I spent a week in Jordan. I was very curious about Petra, and seeing it was a thrill that I will never forget as long as I live. But the best part of my visit was meeting so many great Jordanians. Of all the places I visited, the Bedouins in Petra and the residents of Amman were some of the most outgoing and welcoming people I encountered anywhere.
I rarely photographed any of the people I met because it usually didn't feel right. But I had a really good chat with a couple of kids sitting on top of a cliff overlooking Petra. One of them, Solomon, had his donkey Jack waiting nearby. Solomon never told me what Jack's last name was. ;)
