В мае 2017 года я был в Северной Африке, в Тунисе, в городе Сусс. Проживал я в отеле, в котором решил взять интервью у главного аниматора, который был очень весёлый, профессиональный и, в том числе, неплохо говорил по-русски.
Его все называли Рио, но его Арабское имя — Риад (Riadh). Рио — это короткое и удобное имя для туристов.
Интервью я брал на английском языке, т.к. его уровень владения русским не позволил бы провести интервью. Кое-где встречались русские слова.
Я: Чё почему?)
Рио: Эй, ты давай говори, я плохо говори по-русски, а, понимаэшь?
Я: I speak on English!
Я: If you can give answers on Russian, you can give answers on Russian
Рио: Yeah. I don’t understand: why?)
Я: Why? It is my hobby
Рио: Yes, okay, давай
Я: Your name is Rio, and what is your last name?
Рио: My Arabic name is Riadh Ajmi. Rio is name only for tourists, because it is short
Я: Can you write it on my notebook?
Рио: По-русски or английски?
Рио: Here? Here?
Я: How your friends, your family name you?
Рио: My friends not say Rio, they say Riadh
Я: Ok. And how old are u?
Я: I thought, it is less than 25. Ok. Where was you born?

Так получилось, что после интервью мной были подарены мои часы моему собеседнику.
Я с ним списался недавно (осень 2017) и узнал, что часы он бережёт и носит.
