The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, where e-AGE18 is going to be held, is a young state that occupies an ancient land, one that bears the traces of many civilizations. It is a crucial corner of the Middle East, awash with biblical heritage, ancient sites, broad swathes of desert and in city of Petra one of the most iconic landmarks on the planet, Jordan could scarcely be called an unknown quantity. But it also has its unheralded areas and its little mysteries.
Jordan is among the most politically liberal countries of the Arab world, and, although it shares in the troubles affecting the region, its rulers have expressed a commitment to maintaining peace and stability.
In places, it’s like an open-air museum with ancient ruins and mythical cities dotting the horizon. There are natural phenomena and arresting vistas that make for a photographer’s dream.
Throw in delicious cuisine and welcoming locals, and you will have a wonderful destination full of adventure and intrigue.
