It all started when my skateboard-loving husband got the chance to help out at 7Hills Skatepark — a skatepark his organization built in the capital city of Amman. There was no way I could not go. Still, I'd never been to the Middle East before and was admittedly a little nervous.
Turns out Jordan was the perfect introduction to the wondrous world of Middle Eastern-style hospitality, food, and adventure. I spent most of the month in the capital, which is westernized, but still has the occasional camel scurrying across the highway.
