I Got Wheels

Yesterday, my life improved a lot. I started leasing a car through the school so now I have some mobility. The campus is kind of in the middle of nowhere and it gets very suffocating to be stuck here. It has already been amazing just to be able to get a haircut, or to buy lemons for science, without a making a huge ordeal out of it. Driving is a little stressful because it’s somewhat every man for himself, but I’ll take that over being stuck on campus any day.

It’s a silver Toyota Corolla (كرولا as they write in Arabic). It doesn’t compare to my car sitting in the states (Webster!) but it does the job. The people I’m sharing the lease with and I are thinking about pimping it out Jordanian style – a lot of people have full back windshield stickers of the King holding a sniper rifle with a huge hawk in the background. I have a short paragraph of three sentences to describe how I feel about that: I. Want. That

  4. Hello,
    My friend and I stumbled across your blog when we were looking up information about the dead2red run. We are Americans currently living in Amman for a year doing economic development with local companies. We found that you are living in Madaba, and one guy in our program (josh) lives down there as well and would love to know some more people that live closer to him rather than venturing up here (to amman) all the time to see us. If you are interested in meeting some new people we are always up for hanging out. Anyway, just thought we’d say hi. My name is Kaley, and feel free to contact me through e-mail. Hope you’re enjoying what’s left of the weekend!

  5. yeah yeah, I want that!
