... out jasmine and other flowers to me. We left after ten then came back to the apartment and had sandwiches and delicious tea,..ten minute before bed. Dad the way they eat zatar is cool because they hav the pita on the side and dip it in a small bowl of olive oil the into another bowl of zatar. When I was ready for bed, Zaina tucked me in, literally told me to lay down then put the blanket on me, and took her iPad because she didn't go to sleep that early (11:00) and was going to play ...

The Only Frustration of the Entire Trip
