Thanksgiving dinner 1

Thanksgiving dinner at the Fulbright House. There was a “jebel of food” as described by our dear leader Alain McNamara. Nice to have some good American Thanksgiving quinine for the holiday. Another one tomorrow night!


New bedtime stories… In Arabic!

We read stories to Eli every night for bedtime. We brought a good number of his books with us from the U.S. (though he has quite the library in storage in NJ).

As we grow his collection here, picking up a couple new ones each week, I figured it would be good to get some Arabic in the mix. So we bought a few this past week and he seems to really like them (especially the one about the boy and his monkey – قرد – who likes to play ball but unfortunately breaks a window at the boy’s school and gets sent home). Goodnight!
