Sending texts rather than iMessages

My wife is traveling in Africa with iphone 5. I am in US getting text messages from her but she isn't recieving mine. Hers appear green (not blue) on her screen so I assume because she is on a different service that they are just texts. Mine are blue (imessages) and I have tried deleting and reentering her as a contact but my iphone 5 still recognizes her number as an iphone so it sends imessages. I assume that is the problem and, if I could just send a regular text, it would work. Does anyone know how I can do that?
