1. Hahaha, I wanted to be vague about it, but I’m referring to the person who is more popular in the international news – for amusement and entertainment purposes 😀

  1. Your interactions with Americans are very amusing–although I’ve only spent most of my time in the Midwest and a few weeks in Texas, I’ve always found that people are much, much inherently kinder and tolerant than the media makes it seem. But the misconceptions about Muslims just keep growing here, so I’m not surprised people were shocked at your being an educated, working woman. The media rhetoric makes it seem like all Muslim women are oppressed, uneducated puppets. ???? The only thing we can do is interact with others, so it’s wonderful you guys were social during your travels and talked to so many people! Even in your short time here you’re helping change America’s dialogue from the yellow haired presidential candidate! Now if only you met a Trump supporter and could’ve convinced him/her that Muslims are pretty cool ???? haha…hope the rest of your time in USA is going (went?) well!

    1. Thank you, Maria! We are back home in the UAE now but we had stayed in the US for 6 weeks and, now that I think about it, I hadn’t really spoken with any Trump supporter! That could have definitely been interesting and, like you said, a good opportunity to prove that Muslims are pretty cool 😀

  2. Loved reading about your journey across America, I am living vicariously through you! 😉 I get bored when some hotels present the same meals everyday in their buffets, so can understand why you made sandwiches in the end! 🙂
    I usually receive the same reaction as you when some people talk to me! Proud of you for being a positive role model 🙂

    1. Thank you, Londoneya! Please blog again. I miss your posts!

      Kosher would have been a good option, unfortunately, we couldn’t get it. I’m usually not a picky eater but imagine eating the same bean burger every day 😀

  3. You usually don’t come across Trump supporters – they don’t exist! No one will admit to voting for him, but secretly they do.

    Loved your review – I wonder if you got sick of the food because it was the same veg menu all the time. Kosher might have been a different one every so often. When we went to Disneyland, they had kosher meals at the restaurants which was so much better than the veg / seafood options.

    1. Thank you! Yes, it was the same menu! I would definitely recommend asking them for their Kosher options.

      You are right, Mezba. I’ve met so many Americans during my 6-week stay and not a single one admitted to be a Trump supporter.
