here (Liz, this reminded me of you)
But then I wrote this-it hit me! Yes, I am not with my friends right now on the bus to Sinai to enjoy the beach and serenity and peace. Yes, I am at home with six other people typing away when all I need is to be alone. But I can still make the best out of it right?
I had also read this earlier, via Gala. And as soon as came back home (a few minutes ago) I found that Liz had written this.
You see, my father is a really sweet person, very nice and...Egyptian. Too Egyptian honestly. He's very conservative and that is why I didn't get to travel with my friends. Because he thinks that me leaving with them would mean that he'd have to allow my sisters to do the same..and I don't know. I'd rather not talk about that.
Since everyone is talking about Easter, I thought I should share this with you. So basically, the entirety of Egypt celebrates the day after Easter, just like our ancestors did. I love my country! And no, I don't eat feseekh.. only herring..
