So cool! My mom has always wanted to go there - when I win the lottery I'll take her. Did your dad find the grail in there?

Holy crap! How did that happen? Am v. envious.

I've got to show the youngest lamblet!! We were just going over various Wonders of the World and that was one photo she saw.

What took him there???

He was in Amman for work.

What I think is funny, is that the day after he got home, our very chatty little neighbor boy (who's like 6 or 7) came by to say hi. He was dressed as Indiana Jones. My Dad said, "You'll never guess where I just was!" And he gave him a couple of postcards and he was super excited! It was adorable - he had a hat, vest and fake whip.

ok. this is crazy. i was in amman for work last week...perhaps crossed paths with your dad? was there march 5-13...and probably going back in april.
