The piggies apologizing for traveling too much

And their long overdo silence

Where 'O Where are the pigs?

Currently doing a summer filled with adventures that some might deem "too dangerous." But rest assured, the news definitely makes things look worse than they are!!

The pigs spent two months in Lebanon (though unfortunately, it seems the piggies felt they were getting a bit porky and were self conscious and didn't take many photos of themselves....)

Their reason: take a seven week intensive Arabic course (7 hours a day) at American University of Beirut
Result: Utter exhaustion but the ability to impress cab drivers (talking pigs??)

of course, they were subject to a very intense and exhausting course of tricky Arabic puzzles. This says in Arabic, "What is it?"

So many photos were taken in Lebanon, most of which were already posted on facebook....but Lebanon Part II might come soon as well

Next up: Cyprus, Israel, Palestine, and Jordan....!!!

Love the Arabic puzzle. I def would have been stumped by the blacked out area on the animal's face. Let's see huge ears, trunk, tusks, baggy skin...hmmm...haha
