Summary

Here are some things Aref loves about his home.   Mish-Mish, his cat   The dunes in the desert   His friends Diram and Sulima    Fresh apricots   Crispy fish served in baskets   His grandfather, Sidi   His excellent rock collection   The turtles of Oman 
Aref does not want to move to Michigan. He's sure the kids there won't like him. Also, he has everything he needs right where he is! But Sidi has another point of view. Sidi says Aref will go and come back. Just like a falcon or the turtles of Oman, he'll travel far and make his way home to Muscat. 
So Aref sets out to say good-bye to everything he loves. Good-bye to Mish-Mish, Diram, Sulima, dunes, Sidi . . . But how can he stand it?
