Yesterday in the Jordanian Countryside

When we left the women's co-op yesterday, these school boys on their way to class surrounded us. I asked where the girls were, and the boys said they go to school in the morning. So school is segregated, and boys/girls go in shifts. One of our group gave these guys chocolate, and it got crazy. A man came to tell them to stop mobbing us, and our guide said, "It's okay. They are good kids." So the man asked us all to tea. We declined, but you get the picture....

Disclosure: The Jordan Tourism Board is covering most of the expenses for this trip, though it exercises no influence over what we say or write about it.
