Off to Amman, Jordan

Posted on

I’ll be off for a couple of days to Jordan, the first in my life! But, as I told my wife this morning, all hotel lobbies and conference halls look virtually identical, down to the smell of the cleaning solvents they use!

It’s the semi-annual meeting of the IREX advisory council.

Any idea as to who should be the Scapegoat this time?

    You will enjoy it. Just like Bahrain, to be honest and fair, they are very nice people and accomodating. Enjoy.. The weather is beauitful at this time of the year. Check out a place called “Maysa Al-Reem” opposite Prince Raid’s house, it a a well known food place, with exellent mezza.

    I nominate Gulf Air as scapegoat. Wait a minute.. They probably wouldn’t be on time for that either!

    Enjoy. The weather is finally cooling off now that the heatwave has broke. Amman keeps changing– it seems every day. If you get a chance, you should graba coffee at Wild Jordan Cafe near the first circle. It can be tricky to find and is a very American cafe, but the view of the city from there is incomperable.

    Im jealous of the green I see in that pic…what happen to the green of Bahrain..its been replaced with grey…as in concrete…Bahrain has lost a lot in this race for expansion farce.
