I almost didn't come to Amman. I was almost in Bangkok.
Well, it would never have happened given the violent events there these last few weeks. A colleague and his wife came from the traumatized city; evacuated from their home in the "red zone" a few days before he left. He's not sure what awaits him when he gets back.
These photos were taken just steps from his apartment before government forces moved in.
A much different city awaits him upon his return; and any of us going back.
