Just a little ways out of the city we discoverd the engine of the amjad/van was getting hot. We learned that it doesn't drive so well at faster speeds for longer times. :) Our driving caravan was kind to slow down and take a few "cool down" breaks with us. We were also stopped by the police and told that amjads were not allowed out of city limits because they tip easily at high speeds. This was one of those moments I was so thankful Eli knew Arabic so he could understand what the police were saying and explain that we didn't know about this rule. We still had to pay for the traffic violation but at least we can learn from our mistakes.
Eli and Isaac were the first brave souls to enter the very cold water
