Ways to Say Goodbye

As we say goodbye to the first month of 2008 (and I have met my goal of average one post per day each month), this is the ideal post. I have an ongoing email conversation with a friend (who might comment and reveal their secret identity) and we have started using foreign terms for farewell as something to do to end the emails. Here are the ones that have shown up so far:

Adios (Spanish)
Arrivederci (Italian)
Au revoir (French)
Ciao (Italian)
Kwaheri (Swahili)
Namasté (Sanskrit)
Sayonara (Japanese)

This is only the beginning. There are so many choices left. More languages than I can count (especially if you try to use Wikipedia). I will probably update this post as this silliness continues.
