It always amuses me to no end when I see my mom getting interested
in the latest technological trends. As I was meeting my parents and sister at
the airport last weekend, my mom recounted how my sister almost lost her
Ipod before they took the flight to DC from Amman.

My first reaction was: "Mom, you know what an Ipod is? Impressive."

"Of course I do!" said my mom sounding offended. "And I know Facebook as well," she added.

Is that not just so cute? It seems that facebook is more embedded in Jordanian life than I thought. Fascinating!
