I like this place.
I promise to not live in America any longer than necessary - it's miserable. Useful, wealthy, and miserable.
My baggage STILL hasn't arrived yet. I try not to be too irritated.
I bought a really good face wash and face scrub a couple of weeks ago in a supermarket in Sana'a. The city is Lagos without the overcrowding (cleaner, safer, ...) I like the food at school. The classes...learned so much in such a short time. Today, we talked about our schools (Caltech, University of Illinois, and some school in Germany) in class...I got to use a new word - malal - a lot. Malal jidan means "very boring."
If you're anything like me, I recommend Sana'a. You'll feel at home.
I expect to like Iraq / Israel even better. It's funny that it took coming to Yemen (supposedly anti-Jewish, Muslim, evil, wooooo) to make me interested in living in Israel.
