Jordania (Los Países del Mundo) : SPANISH edition. Jordan is one of the oldest countries in the world. It is a land where geology and the history of mankind have left important, and in some respects still mysterious, traces. The nomadic Bedouins, custodians of ancient traditions which the rest of the Arab world has been unable to preserve, are the soul of this intriguing country, with its harsh landscapes and gentle nature. In the shadow of their black tents they still recount the ancient tales of the desert, all about djinns, the mischievous, elusive imps which a generous, tolerant Islam has allowed to survive in popular beliefs. This country, finally at peace after decades of war, precarious borders and waves of refugees flooding in from neighbouring countries, which faces a multitude of problems but enjoys great prestige, now takes its place on the new Middle Eastern scene, ready to construct a future worthy of its noble, incredible past.
