  1. Bonjour, je suis Aalia du Canada et je comprende le francais (un peu) parce-que j’etudie a l’ecole.

    If someone can please give me Nathalie’s number in Saudi Arabia, I live in the United Arab Emirates and I am wishing to contact her.

    As a fellow Canadian citizen AND Muslim, I am concerned for my Sister (as countryman and religious sense).

    Please establish a reply on my Blog, where I was given this link.
