The return from Semana Santa, for a few reasons (all of them positive), has altered my sleep patterns, and now I am working to regain my tedious schedule of work and reading. As a matter of fact, I am now reading a very entertaining book by Elif Shafak called The Bastard of Istambul. When I am done, I will give my final verdict.
In any event, to help me sleep last night, I put on Deb by the Algerian signer Souad Massi which I had not listened to in quite a long time. Maybe through osmosis, I will learn some Arabic. I wonder whether Brad Pitt, allegedly a big fan of Marrakech after having filmed Babel in Morocco, would be as successful.
