This is Joanna, another American girl living here. We attend fellowship together on Friday morning and usually come back to my apartment to watch LOST on pirated DVDs. (Below is a picture of the King's Highway. Below is the Red Sea with Palestine on the other side.)

This is an Engagement party that I attended. 200 women dancing in a ballroom and one man... the future groom.

Thankful for Maryana

I just got back from a 2 day trip to Aqaba with my co-workers and friends from CGE. This is Maryana, a Jordanian girl and one of my closest friends here. Behind us is the Red Sea and Palestine.

My Favorite Arabic Words

Recently I have discovered that 12 year old boys and I have much in common.

There are a few words that I have learned in class... and I bust into giggles. Its quite embarressing when when you explode into stifled laughter and snorts and no one else does.

Shitta= Rain (and Winter)
Fag= Wake up (masculine)
Fagit= Wake up (feminine)
Fukka do = Lost
Biffokker = I think
Wada fuk = He hired you

I am not trying to be dirty. ;)
