That is a cool story because you went to a desert. You used vivid words like the "sand stinging." Nico says you should bring Cole on your trips.

That must have been scary, but cool! You did a great job on writing about what happened. You used a lot of detail. We felt like we were in the story.

I've found that strangers are much more likely to strike up conversations with me when I'm wearing a Brazil shirt of some kind... Also, props on *almost* achieving DJ status!

Brazil shirts
You're so right, Pedro. It's an easy way to find some random dialogue. Often times, they assume I'm actually Brazilian. then i tell them that Jenn bought the shirt at Target! haha

Persian v. Arabian Gulf
My friend Bill O'Brien was in the UAE during the 1st Gulf War and was assigned to brief a UAE prince on the progress of the war. He had a map posted on the wall and noticed the prince was staring unhappily at the water to the east of Saudi that was labeled "Persian Gulf". He quickly said "your majesty, I'm sorry for the error on the map. I know it's the Arabian Gulf, but it's a british-made map, and you know how they are". Now that's how you make points while throwing the brits under the bus.
