El Morabba3!

A few days ago, my friends and I went to a concert to see a band called El Morabba3. This concert was held in the Roman Amphitheater as part of a music festival that happens in Jordan every few years. The amphitheater provided a beautiful backdrop for the concert and the music was beautiful… it all felt very magical. It was also funny to recognize so many people at the concert– there were people from CLS, a few of our teachers, and other random people we have met in Amman. What I have learned is that the same group of people go to all the same events, so I have started to recognize the same people in the same cafes and other events. Small world!

All in all, it was a great night and I am now a new fan of El Morabba3.

Yesterday’s Excitements

The three exciting things about yesterday:

1. It rained, so of course that was exciting. It was only for a short time though, but it was nice to see some water!

2. After school a band called “AudioPharmacy” came to play and talk to us at AMIDEAST. They are on a tour in the Middle East (funded by the US government) so they stopped at our school. Their sound was pretty cool and I loved their message of positivity, global peace, and women’s empowerment.

3. In the evening my host father’s mother and two of her sisters came over from Bahla to spend the night. We sat around and talked in the living room and then ate dinner.
