Alexandria

I've been playing around with my layout, obviously! And I decided to keep this: I picture I have taken of the Nile, on the 4th of August. The day my cousin got married. It means a lot to me. With all the Cairo lights.

I love Cairo.

I am leaving for about 3-4 days, to Alexandria, and I decided to not take my laptop with me, so I will read comments, and emails, but I don't think I'll be updating my blog.

 
I am taking books with me, Miss B, I bought The Elegance of the Hedgehog, with you in mind. I am going to read that, and I am currently reading The History of Love.
I would like to add this to my wishlist:
I would also like to remind everyone to go after what/who they want, don't wait, life won't wait for you...You wouldn't want to miss out now, would you? I wouldn't!
 
I will take pictures! Please miss me? And oh, stay safe. I love you. Oh my God, I feel so emotional...I've gotten to attached to my blog :(
