Kickin' It at the Corniche

Yesterday Bonnie and I went swimming in the Gulf. The coastline is called the Corniche here. After swimming I called my Palestinian brother, Tamer to meet us at a cafe. He said my Arabic is getting good.

Yom Moomtaaz! (Excellent Day!)

New Bulletin Board

Our supervisor said that she wanted more attractive bulletin boards so.. what can I say.. I give the people what they want! This is an interactive bb.. the fruit is velcro-ed on.. the kids put the fruit in mom's basket depending on what's on the grocery list.

Dalia's Birthday Party

I don't know how old Dalia turned as this is a closely guarded secret, but I do know that her birthday party was a blast.
In attendance were people from ALL OVER the world. Dalia had "Happy Birthday" sung to her in 5 different languages; English, Arabic, Hindi, Spanish and French!
