A Family that Vacays Together

Last time when we checked in with Jordan, one of BE’s See the World, BE the Future scholarship recipients, he was lighting up the city of Abu Dhabi and learning about the religious culture at theSheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. This week, he was in for a pleasant surprise.

When Jordan’s family first told him they would be visiting, he was a little irritated because it would interfere with his spring break plans. He quickly got over it once they arrived, reminding him just how much he’d missed them. He soon realized how lucky he was when other exchange students said they envied his opportunity to have his father, mother, brother and two dear family friends witness how he’d adjusted to a new culture. Jordan soon became eager to make his family proud.

The first night they all dined at a Lebanese restaurant. It was nice for Jordan to hear his family’s first impressions of the city he had become so accustomed to. And it was wonderful to hear his dad entertain the group with stories of learning the Arabic signs, learning to use the train station, and learning the differences in culture.
