... and promptly bought a jar of the jam for 3 dinar and a bar of prickly pear soap for 2 dinar. The man, his wife and son were very nice and the home made cookies were pretty awesome. Anyway, just as we were about to leave I spotted the most elusive of objects in a Muslim country ... the Christmas ornament.
