Touch down

8 04 2008

We arrived safely in Amman, and have moved into our hotel in Madaba. All the dig equipment made it through safely. A few random thoughts:

  • The new mosque in Madaba lights up the night sky, its like the Disney palace or something.
  • Props to the Jayhawks for winning the tournament, looks like the game was a thriller.
  • Not too surprising that Memphis big weakness (free throws) finally came back to haunt them.
  • Apparently this is the price you pay for being an archaeologist, you have to miss big games.
  • The hotel is really nice, but the room reminds of a monk/prison cell.

Glad you made it safe. You’ll have to let me know all about this new hotel. Have fun with the GPS equipment!
