Grace's Journey to Jordan

Current Location

Amman, Jordan

As a college student from northern California, I have decided to go to Amman, Jordan to learn Arabic and be immersed in Middle Eastern culture. I hope you'll join me on this adventure!


Come with me for a look at my latest week in Jordan. Since it was just announced that all people must stay inside until at least April 30th, I have had a lot of time to reflect on my surroundings.


I use this journal as a chance to reflect on my time so far in Jordan and what I want to do in the country before I actually have to say farewell.

Field Notes
