|Jumping around in Jordanian Desert|
I almost forgot to mention my weekend adventure in Petra, Jordan! As you've probably noticed from my previous blogs, I like to travel, and though it wasn't cheap to go to Petra, I figured if I didn't do it while I was in Israel, I may never see it. So I went with a tour group and it was pretty amazing. We got to see Petra, sleep in a Bedouin camp, tour the desert, and even spend some time in Eilat at the end. I met some pretty cool people, which sometimes just makes all the difference.

I believe this experience has really made me an advocate for PWD. I hope that someday I'll be in a position where I can be employing PWD myself, wherever I am and whatever I'm doing, so that I can continue the good work that so many have already been doing. I'm truly grateful for the opportunity given to me by EDI and all the host organizations that took such great care of my during my stay in Israel.
