Khartoum Sickle Moon

The moon above makes me think of the nursery rhyme "Hey, diddle, diddle"

The Arabic word for moon is gamirr and for half-moon is hilaal

  10. In my North Egyptian accent we say Amar, in Standard Arabic it's Qamar, in many dialects it would be Gamar, Q in Sudanese is usually pronounsed "Gh" like French and German R, this is why you wrote Afriqia Afriria now I understand.
    I didn't think u're arrogant or anything like that (if you count me in) but people sometimes get annoyed if some1 tells them they may be wrong, I don't wanna annoy anyone and I'm happy that I don't annoy you :)
    Vegetables are Khodrawat, it comes from Green (Akhdar (masc.) and Khadra (Fem.) kh is like German ch (in Buch) or Scottish (Loch) or Spanish J, if you write it gh Arabs would think you mean French R غ
    I love languages, if you want I can help you learn Arabic in its standard or Egyptian form
