In one of the many long bus trips that the TechWomen delegation took around Jordan recently, our guide told us the story of being awakened one morning in the middle of the capital city Amman by the sound of a goat herd being driven through the streets, to which his neighbor remarked “Goats happen”. From the ruins of Jerash, to the streets of Petra, and alongside every highway, we did indeed see sheep and goats (and occasionally camels) everywhere we went. Sometimes the herds were associated with the flat tents of transient families or refugees but more often they were just moving along the road. Most of us mentors are city girls, not used to the urban goat.
