Yeah, well, sorry to disappoint you.

That said, you can still pick up some nice lingerie for your sweetie, in a wide array of colors. Probably even in Mecca.

Well, here’s a story I found in the Al-Monitor that torpedoes that tidy little narrative. Take a look, [Read more...]

The Kingdom Of Jordan Through My Camera Lens…

What follows are a few snapshots taken while I was in Jordan for the Religious Blogger/Press Tour. I took hundreds of photographs (who doesn’t these days?) and I intend to share them with you here. How about a dozen at a time?
