Next Post: Amman, Jordan

jordan flag, amman jordan, foreign service usaidSource: CIA World Factbook.We are going to Amman, Jordan for our next post! It will be a four-year tour (technically two two-year assignments with home leave in between).Kail only submitted bids to four assignments, and Amman was No. 1. We would have been happy with any of them so the only downside would have been not getting placed this round and having to bid during the normal (i.e. non-CPC) cycle. But we are really excited about Jordan.Our plan worked: One tough year is buying us four awesome years. And some carpets. It’s time to go on a permanent mental vacation from this place and start thinking about the next adventure. Normally, I would be all about Being Here Now and Staying Present but when “here” is a compound and “now” is your eighth week stuck on said compound, “present” is the last thing you want to be.Luckily, I’ve been a longtime reader of Email from the Embassy, which has four years of material about life in Jordan. I’m already looking forward to the food and trips to the Dead Sea.Where are you heading next?
