Abu Mousa's kitchen
Abu Mousa left last Saturday for America. He'll be spending Christmas with his two sons and their families in California. His return ticket is in early March, although the notice he put on the kitchen door, temporarily closing his kitchen "restaurant" is a bit more vague.
His visa is good for two years. "I'm coming back," he assured me. "I don't even like America." Aside from the comparative high cost of tomatoes, eggplants and dates, which he has mentioned more than once, he said most of all the problem with America is that almost no one speaks Arabic.
