Knowing of his interest in such matters, I wonder if Prince Charles' programme will include a visit to the Royal Institute of Interfaith Studies and the Ba'adia Progamme. Sadly, I somehow doubt it, as these are both pet projects of Prince Hassan's, and so he ( a former colleague and maybe also friend to Prince Charles for over three decades) would have to be part of the official programme, which might not be the sort of thing that the present people in charge want to remind the Jordanian public about.

What do you mean? They sound like good things and I thought Abdullah had an interest in interfaith activities.

Charles Lands In Jordan For Four Day Visit
HelloMagazine.com

27 OCTOBER 2004

Prince Charles has arrived in Jordan for his first trip to the Middle Eastern country since 1999.

Upon arriving the 55-year-old was received at the British ambassador's residence in Amman, where a group of young Jordanians presented him with a commemorative shield to mark the occasion.

The Prince of Wales' trip comes during the holy month of Ramadan, and he is expected to join King Abdullah and Queen Rania for Iftar, the meal that comes at the end of each day of fasting. His four-day visit will also see him inspecting a number of development projects and indulging his interest in Islamic art.

The last time Charles travelled to the country was for the funeral of King Hussein five years ago. Relations between Jordan and the UK are strong, though, and Queen Rania, who is currently expecting her fourth child, has made several visits to Britain in the last year.

Charles jetted into the capital from Turkey, where he reopened the British consulate on Monday. The facility was devastated in a bombing last year, but the future king was insistent the terrorists would not succeed. "Far from sowing division between us, those who planned these attacks simply brought us together - Briton and Turk, Muslim, Jew and Christian," he said.

Queen Rania, Prince Charles visit Ajloun Nature Reserve

Ajloun, Oct. 28 (Petra) -- Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah
and HRH Prince Charles of Wales on Thursday visited the Ajloun
Nature Reserve, which is a pioneer eco-tourism project launched by
the Jordan River Foundation (JRF) in cooperation with the Royal
Society for the Conservation of Nature (RSCN).

Queen Rania and Prince Charles were briefed by RSCN President
Senator Layla Sharaf about the nature reserve project which started
18 months ago, following which RSCN Projects Director Chris Johnson
gave a brief overview of the society's work and future plans in the
area.

Touring the reserve's campsite enabled Queen Rania and Prince
Charles to take a first hand look at products and facilities
provided at all of Jordan's nature reserves through samples
showcased in the reserve's different cabins. Those include Dana,
Moujeb, Azraq, and Shomari reserves.

Nine Britons on a pilgrimage tour have died in a bus crash near the ancient city of Petra in Jordan. The British tourists were travelling on a coach from the top tourist attraction when one of its front tyres burst and it collided with a small pick-up truck. Three more people, two Jordanians and one Egyptian, died in the crash. Prince Charles, who is touring Jordan, visited survivors of the accident who were being treated at the King Hussein Medical Centre in Amman. He described the crash as a "ghastly accident", and said his heart went out to those who had lost their relatives.

My thoughts and prayers are with their families and those who are being treated by the excellent staff," the Prince of Wales, who arrived at the hospital accompanied by the Jordanian King Abdullah, said in a statement.

Clarence House later confirmed that Prince Charles would follow the official programme by visiting Petra's so-called "Treasury" building on Friday, as scheduled.

Samir Samawi, the 36-year-old tour guide who was travelling on the coach, told relatives a front tyre blew out just before the collision with the small truck. After that, the coach somersaulted, Mr Samawi reportedly said. After the crash, survivors were airlifted to Amman. British ambassador Chris Prentice said it was "sad news" and that his prayers were with the families and injured.The accident happened 155 miles (250km) south of Amman, on the Desert Highway between Wadi Rum and Madaba.

Prince Charles, due to visit Petra on Friday while on a tour of the country, was in north west Jordan visiting a nature reserve with Queen Rania when the accident occurred.
A Jordan Tourism Board spokeswoman earlier on Thursday said the driver and guide were Jordanian. "It's not yet clear just how many people were on board or if there were any other nationals among the passengers." The board confirmed that Pilgrim Travel, in Deal, Kent, had organised the tour.
The eight-day tour of Jordan began on 23 October, the company's web site said. It included a flight from Heathrow to Amman, with the visit of Petra described as the "highlight" of the trip. The tourists were to stay at Petra Palace Hotel Petra, before seeing Bedouin camps in the desert and sites of religious significance. Their final night was to be at the Dead Sea Spa Hotel, before flying out to Heathrow from Amman.

Have you noticed how many blown tires there are to be seen all along the Desert Highway ? I wonder if there is something wrong in the the composition of the road surface ?
