Sights from Ajloun, Kingdom of Jordan
Rolling hills. Greener than most parts of Jordan. Located about an hour's (about 75Km./46Miles) drive from Amman; of Jordan, Ajloun is distinct in some ways: it has one of the very few forested areas in the Kingdom; it has an imposing old fortress/castle; and it has a very interesting history.

One can make the case for other dates, like when Syrian artillery began shelling Lebanese territory, or when Michel Samaha was caught red-handed trying to plant bombs in the north, but there is something very primal, very slippery-slopey and dangerous about armed tribes conducting tit-for-tat abductions in daylight and ignoring the stunned, powerless and irrelevant government.
