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.
