Okay kids, It's story time! There was once a Faro in Egypt even though he came from Portugal. Long story short, he died like 5000 years ago. THE END!

It was interesting being there, especially during Holi. Though my enjoyment was somewhat impeded by the fact that my mother and I were both still suffering the effects of food poisoning and only had a day to spend there.

You don't have to be Muslim to visit Madina. You just can't go into the mosques, specifically the Masjid-un-Nabwi, or holy places. Otherwise, you are allowed to visit the city itself.

Both Mecca and Medina are off limits to non-Muslims. I didn't go to Medina but I went to Mecca. I got stopped and asked for my Muslim ID card several times.

There's a Nassau in Germany. It was important historically: William of Orange was from there. (Which is why they later named a Bahamanian city after it.)

That's a fun piece of historical trivia! But anyone who knows that would surely also know that Nassau is the capital of the Bahamas. Nassau, Germany is just a small town today.
