Number 5 in a series of Drops in a Bucket blog posts on Brad Lancaster’s and David Eisenberg’s U.S. State Department-sponsored adventures and gleanings in the Middle East Northern Jordan, April 2009
Jordan Valley, Jordan, 2009
The village we were in was strewn with garbage, and the soil was bare and severely eroded. Houses were made from concrete brick and whatever materials could be scavenged. Then we saw the oasis: an island of green bursting from the yard’s pallet fence.
Learn about Basma, the creator and caretaker of this oasis, and the story of how it came to be here, on my home blog, Drops in a Bucket.
