  1. I just got one wrong – nice quiz, Meshack. Again I noticed some Arabic influence, but this time just on Thursday and Friday. What’s a little funny is that while Wednesday is Jumatano (=”Day 5″), Thursday is Alhamisi which is Arabic for “The fifth” 🙂 This is because Arabic day-names follow the Hebrew tradition of counting the Sabbath (Saturday) as the last day of the week.
