August of 2014 Colleen and I were fortunate to visit Jordan.  She was invited to take part in a series of economic development workshops sponsored by the International City Managers Association and USAID (yes that USAID!).  Being the good trailing spouse, I came along camera in hand. Here are a few shots.
