Kate has been in Amman since Saturday and will be leaving tomorrow for Mafraq. The PC group took a short tour of the ancient ruins surrounding Amman. (No hijab required in Amman.)
I can tell that she's having a good time (so far!). The hard work begins soon, but she's got her sunny attitude at the ready!

How wonderful Beth! I hv a friend in Iraq, serving as a civilian on a base...always gives me goose bumps when we connect...so far away...amazing.
My daughter Annie (16) wants to know what one has to do to get into the PC...I told her I wld ask my friend Beth! haha...
she has a serious case of wanderlust...
So glad yr Kate is having this exp. and a firm believer in seeing the world in whatever capacity when the opp. arises...I left my country when I was 19 on my world adventure and haven't looked back...but I know it broke my Dad's heart...now I am starting to know what it feels like.
I am so glad Kate is doing well. I had a friend from Jordan. We were working on campus and the crown Prince was visiting, & her family knew the royals. She was expected to show them around - wow! what an experience! - even crazier, while he was here, the King passed away - he was the new King!!! His wife is VERY nice and they are very forward thinking. I have always wanted to visit, but for now I will have to live vicariously through Kate. :)
those are beautiful photos. she is a brave young lady and you must be so proud of her.
