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.

"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."

King Abdullah: World would welcome Obama

King Abdullah and Queen Rania al Abdullah and their entourage arrived in Aspen on Sunday night. The royal family stayed in top-floor suites at the luxurious Little Nell Hotel at the base of Aspen Mountain, according to a local man who was involved with some aspects of their visit. Queen Rania and some of the family's four children were said to have gone rafting on the Roaring Fork River on Monday.......

Queen Noor, who was born in the U.S. to an Arab-American family, once spent time shortly after college working in Aspen and for years has been encouraging the king and queen to visit here.

"I've spoken to he and Rania many times about what a wonderful place it is for the family," she said. "And about the physical, intellectual and spiritual component, not only of the institute, but of this extraordinary valley. And they feel it.".......

King: The opportunity is available in the Middle East to make peace between Arabs and Israelis

. . . In remarks at the Aspen Institute in the State of Colorado, His Majesty said Peace in the Middle East is achievable and so is the region’s future as a zone of prosperity and stability. “This is essential for the peace and progress of our entire world,” he added.

. . . In his speech, which was delivered in the presence of Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah, Her Majesty Queen Noor Al Hussein, Royal Court Chief Bassim Awadallah and Jordan’s Ambassador in Washington Prince Zeid Bin Raad, the King pointed to the disappointment of Arab people, adding Israel was still building settlements in the occupied West Bank. “We see walls and roadblocks still dissecting Palestinian communities; we see the Palestinian economy still in shambles,” he said.

I've had the pleasure of vacationing along the Oregon coast many years ago. It is a beautiful area, though the beaches are not safe for swimming due to the strong currents. Glad to see that the HM enjoyed his trip.
