A comment on Jordan

I had a conversation with a Jordanian man who has spent the last 18 years in the U.S. He had recently returned to Jordan where his mother and father live. He told me that after 18 years in the U.S. he was having a hard time re-adjusting to Jordan again.

By way of example he explained that he finds it very depressing that when fellow Jordanians find out that he has lived in the U.S. their first response to him is usually, "So why on earth did you come back?"


The more I think about this, the more disturbing I find it.
