Then you may meet a boy who wants to walk around with you. He may or may not sing Brian Adams love songs to you. They’ll definitely be out of tune. Then he might buy you a head scarf and put it on you. You may or may not pretend you have to take a nap and leave him at the Roman Ruins. Maybe. You might even run into him three days later in Petra.
