Dear South Sudan:

My name is not “khawaja.”

Thanks.

Love, Erin

PS: Really, it’s not.

  1. It’s all in the delivery. 🙂 I am sure they have way worse words for foreigner. I’d actually like to know those words. Any chance we can get a “word of the day” part to your blog?

  2. Wiki says Khawaja” is a Persian title of respect. So maybe it’s a good thing? Or is it more like walking down Elston Ave and having truck drivers honk at you?
