Overall, I had a wonderful time. I only wish I could've stayed longer. I am so thankful for the Faraj's and their hospitality. I'm so thankful for Jamille and all she did to prepare for my visit and for taking me to a World Cup game and to Pipa. I'm thankful for Jamille's friends', family's ...

... dollar is a Real. In the States our instinct is to call it (Ree-als), but it pronounced (Hee-eyes). My favorite memory of this, is that our friend Mikey gave up on pronouncing it correctly and for the rest of the trip called them (Hey-yahs). Which of course stuck with the rest of us and that is what we called the dollar amongst each other. But it got a little awkward when we were trying to pay for something and "Hey-yahs" slipped out instead of "Hee-eyes". Most of the time ...
