Air raid maybe?


So, we were sitting and eating dinner today when we suddenly heard a loud sonic boom - a fighter jet flew right over our house. When I ran out to the balcony, I saw the jet, and then one minute later, helicopters started flying by. 19 of them. They circled Amman for about 10 minutes until leaving.

At the Dead Sea we had a helicopter patrolling the beach to make sure nobody swam across to Israel. Military police are pretty good here. Who knows what the 19 helicopter convoy was doing today - they were flying towards Iraq before they started circling Amman. Maybe we'll find out in the news soon.

Just another cool thing that happens here.

We saw those, too! Our landlady's daughter said they might be Israeli jets and helicopters. Who knows.

Hey Nancy and Andrew--I left you a comment on your Dead Sea trip one, but I don't know if you'll see it because it was awhile ago, so I wanted to let you know. :) I don't want you to miss out! Haha. :) It's fun reading your posts!
