Latitude: 31.95 Longitude 35.93. The capital of Jordan is a relaxing place for an American visiting the Arab world. I spent three weeks there in late 2003, accompanied by an Egyptian woman who was surprised that nobody was saying anything against me or other Americans. There was only one scribbling on the wall we noticed: "Fuck Bush." While that mood may have changed over the past 14 months, it was an interesting place for a number of reasons. I was working with "Knowledge Stations" which are computer training sites around the city and country. This photo was taken from one of the Palestinian refugee camps. As you can see they are not in tents; it's a crowded neighborhood, and yes, much of the city buildings are beige. The people in this part of town have lived here since the late 40's.
