Overview

In 2008, Brigham Young University partnered with the University of Jordan in Amman to organize a summer study abroad program for its Arabic students. Scattered across West Amman in home-stays coordinated with Amideast, these students spent the summer living, studying, playing, and adventuring in the Middle East.

This is the travel journal of one of those students, and gives a detailed and intensely personal account of his time there. Besides the cultural experience of living with a Palestinian family in an Arab-speaking country, it tells the story of a critical juncture in his life, and how traveling to Jordan, Egypt, and the Holy Land shaped his spirituality, his outlook on life, and his love for a people far from his American home.

Originally published as a blog. Contains fourteen illustrations from Jordan, Egypt, Israel, and the Palestinian Territories.
