Lots of Chicken, Loads of Rice
Villa Mediterrano (Marriot Hotel) (WHERE)
with meeting participants
Mission to Jordan, Day 4 (see previously 9.263 Mansaf with Meat and Rise).
In Amman. Here to attend a Meeting of the Regional Parliamentary Working Group on Universal Health Coverage in the Eastern Mediterranean Region – Tue to Wed. As focal point for the Asia-Pacific Parliamentarian Forum on Global Health (see most recently 9.231 Boodle Fight), I’m here to help WHO EMRO – which covers North Africa and the Middle East – set up their own forum, aimed for launch sometime in mid-2019.
This kind of thing – a huge vat of rice topped with entirely whole or big pieces of chickens – is apparently a thing here (see for example 6.156 Jordanian Grill Platter). Amazed at how much these people can eat.
