And there was only one kid who got hit hard by the camp director- Bonus! If there were any kids he should have been hitting it was his own. This guy's four year old sun decided to pee on the ground right in front of the door to our bungalow. But other than that, it was a good camp. Beforehand, the Ministry of Youth and Sports attempted to steal scholarship money for sending a couple of our town's girls to the camp, but they failed and the girls had a great time.
Most of the last week has been consumed by boredom/filling out graduate school applications. In a little preview of future tuition, I'm shelling out cash left and right just to email the places my papers.
And then my friend/former student/former Arabic tutor told us she's getting married. We went to the wedding last night. They cooked 70+ chickens, and blasted local music all night. We were literally the first to leave, at 5 in the morning, just as the first call to prayer of the day sounded.
Here are some wedding pictures- keep in mind that no alcohol was involved.
