King’s Oasis

Check out this aerial photo of King’s Academy. Even though we live surrounded by a desert, the campus itself is amazingly lush and green. I tell people I live in Jordan, but I’m not really sure that’s true – I’m on a walled in campus in the middle of nowhere (about 20 minutes into Amman, 5 minutes into a tiny place called Madaba), where everyone speaks English and walks around on beautiful green grass in the middle of the desert. I’m trying to find some sort of weekend opportunity that will get me involved in the community so I can get to know Jordan (and so my Arabic will actually improve).

  1. Wow – that looks odd. Water is at a premium there.
