Reesheh(Risheh?) is a Bedouin town of less than 2,000 people in the middle of the desert in Southern Jordan. CIMG6880 roof view of risheh.jpgWe’ve been here for the last few days along with the Prometheus Radio Project to help the people in the village build their own radio station, and teach them how to operate it.

If you haven’t heard about Prometheus, they are dope. They do ‘barnraisings’ where people get together and build a community radio station in a few days. They’ve done it all over the states, as well as in Africa, Latin America, Katmandu, and elsewhere.

Click here for a movie showing some of the progress in Reesheh so far——the station should be done by the end of the week.

All of the out of towners helping build the station were at the AMARC conference which just finished up in Amman. It was quite inspiring, meeting people from all over the world who are making great radio, or fighting to be allowed to do so. It was kind of like being in a subway car in NYC, except everybody was excited and talking to each other.
You can hear a report about the conference, which I contributed to, at this page.

—Nuff props to Jackson and apologies that I didn’t do more to help.

It’s really the desert out here by the way…..

And for those who feel we haven’t commented enough on our accommodations along the way, here’s a traveler tip: Aqaba, Jordan is home to a hotel where they fold your towels better than anywhere else—possibly in the world.

I should have a report on the radio next week about the completion of the station—ill let ya’ll know soon….

    UNbelievable (totally)!!!! i’m in major awe…(but btw it’s the movie from cinque terra that comes up instead of the new one - technical difficulties i guess)

  2. maralynfisher Says:
