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."

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 :rolleyes:

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.

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."
