Sun Valley Diary: A Peek at the Agenda - Mergers, Acquisitions, Venture Capital, Hedge Funds -- DealBook - New York Times

King Abdullah is the guest speaker at Allen & Company’s annual confab in Sun Valley, Idaho. It said Friday but didn’t give a date.


2008 News Releases and Media Alerts - Aspen Institute

The Aspen Institute will host a special event featuring His Majesty King Abdullah II of Jordan on Monday, July 21, 2008. The event will take place at 3:00pm at the Greenwald Pavilion on the Institute’s Aspen Meadows Campus.


Meredith Carroll: Meredith Pro Tem | AspenTimes.com

The article says King Abdullah and Queen Rania are guests of honour at a “noble dinner” as part of the Aspen Institute activities, but it doesn’t give a date or time.


Are we sure they are scheduled to attend Expo in Spain on Tuesday?

It seems the trip to the U.S. is largely a holiday for the couple:

Flop fears loom over Nicolas Sarkozy's grand plan for Mediterranean Union

…Intense lobbying finally convinced everyone except Colonel Muammar Gaddafi of Libya and King Abdullah II of Jordan to attend the three-hour meeting and Paris festivities. The King said that he was on holiday but Colonel Gaddafi poured scorn…

Jordan's royal family visits
King Abdullah II Ibn Al Hussein is touring the western United States this week on a motorcycle with his son Prince Hussein, making several stops in Southern Oregon. His stay began with an economic forum in Idaho July 12 followed by what his Web site called a "several-day private visit."

" The dinner party tasted Pyramid beers and Rogue Valley wines, including the king's local favorite, Velocity, a red wine from RoxyAnn Winery. King Abdullah insisted waiters leave hors d'oeuvres trays on the table instead of serving."
I didn't know he drinks, isn't he a descendant of the Prophet PBUH?

When will people 'get it' that the image that Rania and Abdullah like to project is not really who they are or what they do

I have deleted a few posts which talked about lifestyles of gulf-royals, King Abdullah drinking etc. This topic is about King Abdullah & Queen Rania’s trip to the U.S and not about lifestyle’s of the royals therefore let’s all get back on topic.
Further off-topic posts will be deleted without notice.

Amoula I saw pics of King drinking beer.
I hope they had fun whitewater rafting. That is one of the most enjoyable things to do in the outdoors, IMO. I always go about once a year. Does anyone know where it was?

"White water rafting is a must on the to do list while visiting Central Oregon ... King Abdullah the Second of Jordan and his son, Prince Hussein, braved the rapids on the Big Eddy of the Deschutes River."
