New clothes


People have guessed that the kids and I are Dutch, French, and British (never American—maybe because there are so few Americans here?). But not when David’s around. They guess that he is Egyptian or Turkish. With his new outfit, nobody is going to believe he’s American.

This is the standard Sudanese outfit—on any given day, about a third of the men in the streets are wearing this, more on the weekends.

I don't think he looks Turkish or Egyptian. I think he looks a little bit like some sort of heavenly messenger. I'll bet you all think he is.
