Yesterday I got a phone call from a friend of mine in Cairo. He just arrived from a job interview in Abu Dahbi, he seems content with the the offer: position wise and ofcourse money wise. Now what is interesting is his little adventure in Cairo airport…he told me ofcourse the airport is still in its chaotic state as renovation work is still being undergone…God knows when these renovations will end..anyways he almost lost his luggage…as someone took his luggage off the rail, luckily my friend saw the person and ran after him and almost got into a huge fight…..so he warned me to keep a close eye of my luggage…well I told him not to worry because my luggage is way to heavy for anyone to just to pick it up and walk away with it hehehhee. Anyway this is just one example of what I should expect once I step in the land of adventures…

In exactly how I feel these days…I guess am still in denial of going back home…actually I don’t know exactly what I feel. Someday I feel excited and happy to go back home, other times I am scared and anxious. I don’t know I guess this is all part of my experience this year -besides the learning, education and meeting all those wonderful people out here- it is getting gushed with mixed emotions, in hope of finding my true self. So what I will do is sit back and enjoy every moment of it. Maybe enjoy is not really the right word here but eh….

Ok am off now …have loads of errands today…will catch up later.

Today’s weather is amazing…..it kind of reminds me of the weather in El Gouna which is a resort in Egypt on the Red Sea (as shown in the pic below).

A Smile for the day April 11, 2006

What a nice way to start a day with a smile…I received this joke this morning so thought of sharing it with ya all.

A little boy goes to his dad and asks, “What is politics?”
Dad says, “Well son, let me try to explain it this way: I’m the
breadwinner of the family, so let’s call me capitalism. Your Mom, she’s the
administrator of the money, so we’ll call her the Government. We’re
here to take care of your needs, so we’ll call you the people. The nanny, we’ll
consider her the Working Class. And your baby brother, we’ll call him
the Future. Now, think about that and see if that makes sense,”

So the little boy goes off to bed thinking about what dad had said.
Later that night, he hears his baby brother crying, so he gets up to check on
him. He finds that the baby has severely soiled his diaper. So the little
boy goes to his parents’ room and finds his mother sound asleep. Not
wanting to wake her, he goes to the nanny’s room. Finding the door locked, he
peeks in the keyhole and sees his father in bed with the nanny. He gives up and
goes back to bed. The next morning, the little boy says to his father, “Dad,
I thin k I Understand the concept of politics now.” The father says,
“Good son, tell me in your own words what you think politics is all about.”
The little boy replies, “Well, while Capitalism is screwing the Working
Class, the Government is sound asleep, the People are being ignored and the
Future is in deep shit.”

Capturing lost love March 30, 2006

“You know the relationship is over, but you pull out the pictures and look at them and the entire relationship flashes before your eyes. There is a split second, right there, a flash when you really, truly believe that the relationship could work again. When you don’t remember what went wrong. When you could go back. But it is only a moment, fleeting as moments are, and then the sadness sets in. And then you must put the pictures away in a box with the love letters and slide it under your bed.”

Today I received an email from someone I never would have ever imagined would sit infront of a computer and actually use the internet; my Father.  He actually made it to the cyberspace. WOW, that was a lovely surprise.  Dad I am so proud of you.

Lost January 24, 2006

Since when have I been living a lie? Since when have I been such a fool in believing in you? What did I do to deserve this from you. Was it wrong to fall for you? Was it wrong to trust you? How could I have been so blind.

I never imagined you would do this to me, leaving me for someone else. There are so many questions I want answered that will probably never be answered. You now have me questoning what went wrong in our relationship, or rather you actually never considered it a relationship, just a causual affair.

I am hurt and immensely consumed by sadness. I know I’ve many times let my feelings lead my actions and it was harmful. I blinded myself to loving you. Maybe you’ve never understood who I truly am, head to feet, body and soul. I like to think if you had known me
better you might have dedicated yourself to me as much as I did to you.

I know I have to stop trying to justify everything, its too late anyways because obviously you have made up your mind about us. Now I have no choice other than to surrender to the unexpected, betray.

(a Letter from a dear dear friend who has lost all her faith in Love..my words for her would be…for someone who betrayed you like this its not even worth thinking of…. you have to try to move on and someday Your True love will be there).

Yesterday Claudia took us on a whole day tour to arti galleries in order to educate some of us with art. Indeed it worked, at least for me. I got to really appreciate art and not just taking it for granted…I wish every student would have felt the same feelings too..

Thank you Claudia for your lovely idea taking us on this trip.
