Jordan and Lebanon

IMG_4610

I arrived home in San Jose, California, yesterday afternoon from my amazing trip to Jordan and Lebanon. My daughter Jessica got safely home to Washington DC the day before. I enjoyed two days of discussions about mentoring and MentorCloud with the remarkable Al-Makassed (the Makassed Philanthropic Islamic Association of Beirut), including impressive tours of three schools. I very much look forward to continuing to work on Makassed program development. Two other TechWomen delegates to Jordan were on my flight to San Francisco – the entire group is making our way back home.

I walked the ancient cities of JerashPetra, and Sidon, rode a camel, met many groups of capable technical girls and women, visited the site of Jesus’ baptism and the tomb of Kahlil Gibran, and talked with a Princess and Vatican Ambassador.  The best part of this once-in-a-lifetime trip was spending time with my daughter and my dear TechWomen friends, deepening our understanding and love.
