Hah, Glow worms sounds much better for some reason. And it doesn't remind me of Rammstein.
Well, if you visit the pyramids you'll get a chance to ride a camel (you may also see ones that can smoke a cigarette or drink cola from a cup). There was a guy who had a herd of camels where I grew up, but he's gone now that the area is much better inhabited. Some people still raise them for meat in the Eid, but it's a very nichy niche.

A few things about language, that I think could be fun to share.
What you call "fly screens" we call "mosquitero", which means "for mosquitoes". The word sounds a little like the Spanish version of "muskeeter".
Fireflies. The "proper" Spanish name is "Luciérnagas" but the common, familiar name, is "bichito de luz", which translates as "small lightbug". I love that name.

The musketeers will defend your home against bugs, lol

Fcrate: Glühwürmchen remind you of Rammstein?????

Firefly reminds me of Rammstein.
@Dina: and now you've reminded me of Tom and Jerry, Mouseketeers. En guarde!
We just call them Wire doors. Or just "Wire" for windows.

Do you mean this one?
Feuer frei, not firefly. Meaning: fire at will

Mouseketeers, lol


Edit: what I like about Rammstein: they are setting everything on fire. In almost every song they perform, there is fire on stage. A lot of fire, lol.

Yes, their live shows are amazing. :D and I thought it was firefly until a Dutch friend (who learned German because of Rammstein) corrected me.

Sorry, I just had to share this
It is during a match of female football (soccer). The fun part is not only in the first minutes. I know you won't understand the voiceover but hopefully it is not needed.

Okay, so first thought: What a lucky dog. :D
Second thought: So cute it hurts. Seriously, it's so happy (Who wouldn't be, with 23 women fussing over them? :D ) and handsome.

Oh, cute dog! And how they try to pick him up. LOL
He would have had fun chasing after the ball.

He does have Messi's evading skills. :D
BTW, none of us who post here regularly are from the USA. Football is fine :D (though how does American Football have any relation to feet, I don't know.)

Ah, so the new name for basketball should be: Football for Tall Players. Volleyball: Football With Jumping Morons. Handball: Football With Hands, Ping Pong: Football With A Paddle. :D

Good idea!  ;D
Baseball: Football with bats.
Rugby: football with violence
Tennis: football with nets and weird cries
...

I love all those ideas!
Water polo: football in a pool
golf: boring walking football

I am glad you liked the dog, so cute. And Fcrate, I just realized you will see me for the first time in World Cup mode.
