When in Rome...

Thought you all might enjoy seeing pictures of me in my thobe. The model I own is actually from Qatar - each country's style is a little bit unique and people from this area can tell them all apart. Lots of the students here wear the traditional dress during the month of Ramadan. I have heard that some will wear it less frequently when the month is over. I made myself quite the novelty when I broke out the thobe for opening day festivities... I must have had my picture taken by a two dozen different cameras that evening at dinner!
