In the cradle of civilization, in a region known as the Fertile Crescent, the country of Jordan lies in Southwest Asia, south of Syria, west of Iraq, northwest of Saudi Arabia and east of Israel and the West Bank. Its geography boasts Mediterranean-style climate, snow-covered mountains and an arid desert plateau. The Jordanian landscape is rich with history. Mohammad Ghnem shares his stories of growing up as a Palestinian boy in Jordan. His skilled work with sand art demonstrates how patience, adaptation and resourcefulness have allowed the people of Jordan to survive and prosper through the shifting sands of time.
