We had dueling melodies outside this afternoon. It’s been cool enough to turn off the air conditioning and open the windows. It’s so peaceful inside without the air conditioner running all day. I was walking through the living room and heard the faint sound of “Twinkle, twinkle, little star” in the air. I chuckled, then I asked Darren if there are ice cream trucks in Bahrain. I guess there are. The little tune repeated over and over. Shortly after it was prayer time at the mosque. The mosque broadcasts prayer services over a load speaker. Normally we don’t hear it, but with the windows open, it was nice and clear. Kind of rhythmic and hypnotic. I thought it was an odd mix of tunes floating in the air. But it made me smile.
