Did I hear "Spring"?

I can't believe it's Spring! I just can't..
Today I listened to Yellow as I drove to work, that song makes me happy;

Look at the stars, look how they shine for you
And all the things you do
Yeah, they were all yellow

I came along, I wrote a song for you
And everything you do
And it was called yellow

 I saw a white seventies van parked under a blooming tree, and it was all surrounded by pink and red flowers. Very new and vibriant.. I can't get that image out of my mind, I, at that moment, had wished I had my camera.

Yesterday, I did some catching up with my very good (very old) friend Hayek! And he got me great coffee, and showed my Heliopolis on GPS!

So, speaking of Spring, I want to show you a beautiful place: Wadi El Rayan, in Fayoum, Egypt (my family is originally from Fayoum!)

Mogi is a friend as well! I got to know him through AIESEC, he was actually the first friend I make in AIESEC, in 2005, please check the rest of his pictures, they're pretty!

Now this is going to be a bit corny..but it's just that whenever I read it, I feel..oh so happy! This is something Mohammed wrote for me while I was away;

She's in my mind sipping her coffee
Her scent captures my senses
and I sink
into thoughts of her doing all the things
that make her happy
I sink again
She's sitting silently
perhaps in a starbucks nearby
Reading a book
probably one of the hundreds she always buys
I smile
I never realized how beautiful she looks when she reads
or drinks her coffee
she smiles at me
I kiss her on the forehead
yes I’m right there
exactly where I want to be
looking at the face that shines only for me
I begin to believe
she's not far away
for I’m right there
sinking in my head
thinking of her
knowing she's across the red sea
thinking of me
drawing that mind-blowing smile of hers
on her caramel-colored face
and I sink, into the big picture of us
such a large unknown space
