A group of Jordanians received the key to the City of Albany today. 14 men and women from Jordan received a proclamation and the key to the City from Mayor Tommy Coleman this morning.

The Jordanians are here as part of Friendship Force International. They have spent the last 3 weeks visiting Raleigh, Atlanta, and Albany.

Khaled Al- Sbeihat said their 8 day visit in Albany was exciting. "We feel like we are in our home. We visited a lot of places in Albany. We feel the people of Albany are very friendly and they are respectful of our people."

The Jordan exchange visitors leave tomorrow for their return home.
