After interacting with the people of Jordan I discovered a lot of the population is made of Palestinean refugees. Although a lot of the make up is from Palestine the Jordanians don't necessarily get along with them or welcome them. But as of current terms a lot of Iraqi refugees have fleed their homes to Jordan. So quickly the country is being populated by those of surrounding countries. So for my ISP I've decided to go into the depth of the interaction of the refugees as well as learning the history of why they are forced to move to Jordan.

After very informative and fun conversation with Sara about everything under the sun, and apparently about some independent study project we have to do (sarcasm) I decided on a topic. Mine, unfortunately, had to be cleared with all of the instructors because it bordered on a bit of touchy subject.

A favorite area of study of mine has been the history and inner workings of intelligence agencies, especially in the modern era. Jordan is one of the safest countries in theMiddle East,when many of its neighbours struggle with problems of internal strife and terrorism.For this reason, I want to study Jordan's counterterrorism strategies and their intelligence community. This will require being diplomatic with the interview process, but for me will be an extremely rewarding project to make this trip applicable to the rest of my life. Saraknows some great people I could talkto, and I am looking forward todigging into this research.

For my ISP I have decided to do a focus on the status of dance in Jordan. I will be looking at the traditional view of dance and also how it is changing (i.e. how belly dancing is viewed as vulgar or how the body is viewed by contemporary dancers). Some of the things I will be looking at closely is how women respond to my questions of them dancing and how the view of one’s body affects the way people dance. This is all for now!

hello all,

a) since this yak is officially supposed to be about our isp futures, i will inform everyone that i'm going to be studying both tabla (middle eastern drum) and oud (lute). since we bought a tabla two nights ago on our scavenger hunt, i've already had plenty of opportunities to jam and learn new beats with people we meet. i'm also very excited to study oud with alena's friend in our homestays in wadi rum coming up in a few days. i'll be interested to find out how it compares with western stringed instruments and if any of my cello skills will transfer.

b) yesterday, alena and 4 of us girls (me, lizzy, francesca, and nabibi/beebster) went to a clothes shop and, after inquiring, were led into the secret abaya and hijab lair upstairs, where we all purchased delightful abayas and tried on hijab. though we all knew we would get a lot more out of our experience if we were embracing local etiquette in dressing, we had no idea that we would be rewarded so quickly - after wearing our abayas outside of the store for about 15 minutes, we were pulled in by a giant jordanian family leaving on vacation and invited (some might say forced) to have a dance party, first with me on tabla, then the family matriarch on tabla, then the full blown boombox. we learned how to dabke (a wedding dance) and generally had a great time partying it up in the middle of the street. we were all really excited that our clothing choices (and beautiful new abayas) had given us an immediate opportunity to get closer to the women here.

off to the DESERT! as someone who hates sand (even after 6 weeks in morocco), we'll see how i do. i am super excited for wadi rum's beautiful sandstone formations.

maasalaama!

My appologies to all the mothers reading this but it was one of the best things I've ever eaten (not to insult homecooking). After breakfast we went into Aqaba and spent the day shopping and discussing our independent studies; I'm doing gender roles in Jordan, other people are doing local politics and such. In the city we shopped for food and clothing, it shocked me that I could hear conversations around me and understand a few of the words. It seemed that while we were out we not only attained food but also a further understanding of Arabic. I have no doubt that Jordanian men and women in Aqaba are currently sharing stories about Americans asking what random items are called in Arabic and widely jesticulating. Time to go eat now (more good food, I haven't been hungry once on this trip and I'm a 17 year old guy) and off to Waudie Rum tomorrow!

Hello to all!

Tomorrow will be our first trekking day in Wadi Rum and while walking back on the steps of Laurence of Arabia, and since our trek is longer than the movie we will not be able to post Yaks during our journey. We will be back in touch with you all hopefully on the 10th, inshaAllah with lots of stories and meditations from the land of the famous mountains, the Seven Pillars of Wisdom!

Maa salameh,

Linda.

Among other topics, we discussed the monarchy, tribe alliances, globalization, Israel, and anti- americanism. We were interested to hear the Jordanian arguments of complex issues that we are only exposed to from an American point of view. Over the last few days, we have been studying arabic and learning about middle eastern culture. It is important for us, especially the girls, to understand what is appropriate and dress and act accordingly. We got a chance to walk around downtown Aqaba to interact with the locals and check out the scene. We stopped to get dinner and we had the chance to try the local aqaban fish. Some enjoyed the meal more than others, but it's all part of learning the culture. Everyone is getting along well and the group is beginning to really come together. These first few days have been great and I can't wait for the trek!

Even though i have just woken up for the third time on this trip i can already truly say this has been an amazing experience. Jordan, specifically Aquaba, is beautiful! To arrive at our little shileles right on the red sea was the perfect remedy to the anxiety and stress i had to deal with over the hectic past day of travelling.

And while swimming in the Red Sea and walking through the streets of Aquaba surely do offer aesthetically pleasing sights; it has been the culture, not the views, that have given me the best experience yet. To observe the way the Jordanians greet each other with such fondness and exitement has made it quite obvious how intimate and important relationships are to these people. Their kindness towards us and their emphatic exitement towards our attempt to learn Arabic has made this foreign experience much more comfortable than i thought it would be. There seems to be a natural trust among the people here that just does not exist in America.

Well I know this was short and i have not exactly recapped any of the exiting things we have done so far but i have to go eat breakfest! I will write again soon.

Even though i have just woken up for the third time on this trip i can already truly say this has been an amazing experience. Jordan, specifically Aquaba, is beautiful! To arrive at our little shileles right on the red sea was the perfect remedy to the anxiety and stress i had to deal with […]

We began to acclimate to Jordanian culture today. First was the not so hot day, by comparison to previous days, then was the amazing scavenger hunt through the city of Aqaba! Asking for directions, asking how to say things in Arabic from locals, even bartering (and in some cases getting lost just a smidget) was truly the best possible way to become comfortable with the culture and language!

Dinner was an adventure in itself. One group found the Quizno’s is not so good here in the Middle East and others found the falafel is quite tasty (unlike in the US).

Breaking barriers was the theme of the day. Both learning about each other and about our surroundings is an experience that will not be forgotten by any!
