An Epyptian oud, picked up on a dig. Nina lost Rita in a crowd one day on the way to work. Being a small child with ADD, she was driving everyone on the dig crazy. Amazingly, when Nina found her daughter, she was sitting, awestruck, watching a street musician play. Over the next month, Nina dropped Rita off with the family of musicians every day. She learned how to play the oud and some other traditional instruments, and the old man gave her an oud as a gift.
