So with 41 minutes left in the trip the pilot made an announcement:

“all passengers must be seated while flying through israeli airspace and buckled in.  NO EXCEPTIONS!”

yea that was interesting, never had that happen.

Today we went to Mt. Nebo, saw the promise land from Moses point of view, and then to Amman’s newest western hangout, Carfour.  This is a french version of wal-mart, and rocked.  Normally I would not be excited about a shopping center, but I got a lot of stuff for my new home for the next 2 months.  

The hotel room is small, but will hopefully work to house 3 guys.  So far we toured the city with a bus and it was great to see the old hangouts.  We even passed the area of my host mother, whom I still need to get into contact with.  There has been so much construction, Jordan has really sprang up in the past year.  Tomorrow we get in some fun walking.
