The amazing covered markets in the old city. Sample phrase:"Oh, MISTER, she is BEAUTIFUL, you must BUY her something!"
Be still my feminist urges.  
Actually the best one was “And this must be your female. She is LOVELY, and in a very good condition”.

This is quite a lot of my hair. It didn’t like the humidity, and five weeks of weird water, and staying up for a couple of nights in a row. It went on strike and formed a union of one massive knot.

Michael translated (or not, as the case may be) over my head as the hairdresser decided he was just going to do whatever he wanted, because the only word we all had in common was “sexy”. It all turned out fine. Everyone had an amusing day.
