Report from Herald newspaper 21 February

King Abdullah of Jordan on visit to Bay

Justin McCabe and Giselle Horner HERALD REPORTERS
KING Abdullah II of Jordan flew in to Port Elizabeth yesterday to begin a journey along the Garden Route to Cape Town – on one of the many Harley-Davidson motorbikes he owns.
His private jet, an Airbus 340, was seen parked at the Port Elizabeth airport yesterday.
The heavily guarded king, who was apparently only spending one night in Port Elizabeth, spent the day riding around enjoying all that the Bay had to offer.
He was spotted riding his Harley-Davidson in the Cape Recife and Willows area.

Queen designated personality of the year

DAMASCUS (Petra) - The Lebanese “Monday” magazine announced that it selected Queen Rania as personality of 2007 for her efforts in the humanitarian field and family care at the local, regional and international levels. The magazine announced the choice during a special ceremony held in Damascus, as part of the Syrian capital’s activities as the Arab culture capital. According to the magazine’s chief editor, Ali Touma, the choice was the result of a 12-week poll of university and school students and business employees, in addition to a field questionnaire covering 3,500 people from different Arab countries.

Monarch high on the hog in SA

by BIÉNNE HUISMAN

All the king’s horses and all the king’s men...Bike-riding Jordanian king and his entourage have an adventure holiday in the Cape

ADRENALINE junkie King Abdullah II dived with sharks, cruised on a Harley-Davidson motorbike and quaffed Coke Lite during a whirlwind visit to South Africa.
The Jordanian king, who is known for his sense of adventure — he is a former rally champion, a qualified diver, a helicopter pilot and a free-fall parachutist — went to great extremes to keep his trip under the radar. But the Sunday Times can reveal details about the elusive king’s local adventures ...

King Abdullah’s Interview with Al Watan Al Arabi Magazine


...The King said that Jordan’s disagreement with Hamas is not related to the internal Palestinian front bur rather to the security aspect. “Jordan continued to send humanitarian aid to the West Bank and the Gaza Strip even after it announced that Hamas had struggles weapons to Jordan a few months ago,” he added.... - Article

They just had a ski holiday together in Austria.

I'm actually surprised that the King would take another break so soon after that......
