Mo wins a jar of cranberry jam. i will post pictures of the jam being made! you will like it Mo. i tried it before, it’s very good.

the winning entry reads: Dear Daniel, Egypt is wonderful. People are so nice. I hope you’ll be able to read this. if not, you can get your money back. With love…. Tamara and Hadi i am glad to finally read this note. i will not have to get my money back.

instead i will make money and create beautiful designs with desktop publishing software. i have been doing that this week. it was a wonderful experience! i spent many hours fiddling with text boxes in quark xpress. i learned many things from the kind people who worked with me. sadly, it is a temporary position. i may not return next week. we shall see if they have enough work to give me.

  1. Hey there Dan. Just to clarify the note, you should mention that at the time it was written you were taking an arabic class and the joke was that you should be able to read the note yourself or apply for your money back! I’m not sure if it is the Egyptian dialect, but Mohammad (not George – he was the consierge) was to write soemething along those lines.

    At least you finally know what it says!
