We're Jason, Beth, Lee Anna, Sawyer, and Sarah Claire, a family of five living, learning, and laughing lots in Northern Africa.
We hope you can learn a little (and maybe laugh a little too) as you read about our latest adventures.

What was that number?
Today, Jason and I were getting ready to go somewhere, and he decided he would call the new taxi driver he met last night. Unfortunately, when he got the piece of paper where he had written the number, this is what he found!

Cell phone numbers here are 10 digits. As you can see, there are more than 10 digits there. In his defense, the taxi driver was talking very fast (like they all do when they're giving phone numbers), and he was speaking Arabic, so 62 sounded like "2 and 60." They also break the numbers up differently than we do--they give the numbers in groups of 3-2-2-3, where we would give 3-3-4 (like 850-123-1234). If anyone has any guesses about what the real number might be, please let us know. Otherwise, we'll just have to hope we run into him again somewhere!
