Tidbit

While we were being led by our guide/hostage in Algeria, the boss pointed out a beautiful view ahead of us.

"Bella"

Our guide/hostage tried to explain to us what we were seeing. However, we couldn't understand the word she was using. She started to draw in the air with her fingers, so I handed her my note pad.


And then, we immediately knew what it was.

Cemetery!

Of course, doesn't that drawing just scream cemetery?

Of course, she had been saying a word that sounded a lot like cemetery all along: cimetière. We just couldn't make the connection.
