Qatari Takes Mary Deane!...

 ...on a donkey ride, but Gramma gives her ok.  Gramma asked, "Mary Deane, do you want to ride the donkey?" Never dreaming in a million years that Mary Deane would give a big nod, "YES!" So for 10 Riyals (3.6 riyals equals US$1.) she was off two times around the rug market at the souq.  She tried not to smile, but you could tell it was awfully thrilling. Now this is the girl that is afraid of a housefly, but there she was on a donkey being led by long-shirted man in a beard, bouncing along as the little decorated donkey trotted on the cobblestone road.




YOU GO GIRL!

Way to go MD! That is awesome. When we were in Africa visiting my sister all of my nieces and nephews rode camels. My one extremely timid niece couldn't contain her smiles riding the camel. It was sweet. Yay for different adventures.
