Al-Salaamu Alaykum

I am writing to say that we have arrived safely in the Middle East! I have once again fallen in love...with a Middle Eastern country :) My guess is that it is about 200 degress with about 200% humidity. The culture is vibrant and very Islamic. Last night I befriended some beautiful young married moms that are taking me and a few teammates to get henna tomorrow. Anyway, I will post more later. Not much time now.

Hey! Those moms are about to get their socks blessed off. I love to watch you with people; your ease, your ability to "gab" and give love. I can't wait to hear more. Continue to blog as much as you can! I love you so much! Mom

Gaby,
Love your blog! Your mom clued me in. Will anxiously await updates. Hey - btw - our community is very Islamic. Maybe you should come HERE!
