My daughter Annalise and I are currently enjoying a holiday in Jordan: the remarkable lost city of Petra by candle light and also in bright sunlight, hiking up Jabal um Adami, the highest peak in Jordan in the dramatic desert landscape of Wadi Rum, snorkeling in the Red Sea at Aqaba.
I'll be back on January 11 after travels in Egypt and a flame retardant meeting in New York City.
