Madaba, Jordan

Abhar had made up his mind to learn as many languages as he could. He took tickets at the archaeological museum and tried to engage people. He watched foreign movies and borrowed foreign magazines. He knew a little Hebrew, English, German, and Swahili. He wanted to learn Japanese, but had found it difficult to get a sense of it. He tried to work for archeologists when they needed temporary workers. Abhor felt that his life in Madaba was almost as temporary.
