I miss hanging out at Abddoullah's shop drinking tea, smoking, talking, and listening to him complain about his "beautiful fat spoiled wife".
Grâce à Mourad, i've been listening to a lot of arabic music which, being predominately vocal music, has made me start listening to singers singers singers..
