BMT 95: Jordanian Culture, People, Language… and more Magic.

In the last episode, we traveled through Jordan as we recapped my experiences there in May of 2018, and today we’re going deeper into the Jordanian culture.

Listen as Ban and I continue our conversation, this time covering topics such as:

  • Jordan dress code – do’s and don’ts according to where you are in the country
  • What it’s like to be a woman in Jordan
  • Ban’s story – where her family comes from, growing up in Saudi Arabia, what is home
  • Arabic v Dothraki, and other Arabic language lessons from a car in Amman
  • Alcohol during Ramadan
  • Reflections from my group trip participants
  • Why people say “Jordan is Magic”
