can I talk to someone on the phone I am in California USA
You can certainly talk to me about our propsed trip to Jordan, but it will be undertaken between Jan. 22-26, 2019. So only understanding gleaned from literature and gut feeling. But one peculiarity of mine is that I do not like "organized Tours". Maybe we can compare notes.
