Jerash Governorate, Jordan
It Is Always About the PeopleI love seeing different parts of the world. What I love even more is meeting the locals. So one of my highlights in Jordan was the unexpected delight of meeting a group of schoolgirls on a field trip in Jerash. I was walking around with my guide and two girls shyly waved at me and said "hi" in English. I said hi back and they quickly came over. Before I knew it, I was surrounded by girls and asking them questions, answering their questions about where I'm from, etc. It was so incredibly special and interesting to get a snapshot of Jordanian culture for young schoolgirls. A definite highlight.
