Subject: Jordan or Egypt?

I have an opportunity to go the Middle East in March and am just deciding between these two. Any idea?

I have been to Jordan before and really want to go back but am worried that the whole country would be in a sad mood with the imminent war and the refugee crisis. I also fear that with all the foreign journalists arriving, hotel accomodation would be much more expensive. Does anyone have any news?

I have never been to Egypt before but somehow feel that it is not the right time to go yet - my main interest is in Mesopotamia and I have not even been to the heartland of that place (I have been to all the countries on the fringes, Syria, Iran, Turkey).

Many thanks Jiale
