Great pictures! Thanks for sharing.
Do you have a recent picture for Jordan river?

You're welcome! That's the only picture I found on the web

your comments on Princess Dina are incorrect. She married once again but never had any more children. Just one Princess Alia bint Al Hussein. She lives with her daughter in Jordan. Lovely pics. T

joladies, you're absolutely right. I got confused between Queen Dina and her daughter prince Alia, who has 2 kids. Thanks for the correction. I thoguht Dina was still living in Egypt, but you live in Jordan and you know better.

joladies said...

Just to get it absolutely correct - Princess Alia has three sons. One by her first marriage and two by her second!!!! T

Gives me the creeps. Whatever he is singing at the beginning sounds like a call for war.
