Easy April!!

April started out pretty intensely.
On the first day of April, we experienced a minor earthquake, affected by the one that took place in Crete, Greece.
On the second day of April, there was a football match at the Cairo stadium and the fans were not searched on their way in and apparently, there was no policing whatsoever, so long story short, violence took place and spectators somehow found their way to the field.
On the third day of April, or rather, today, it rained! Real rain, which doesn't normally/regularly happen in Cairo (as opposed to Alexandria, for example)

And hence my tweet that it feels like the twelve days of Christmas.

The sun is out now and I am about to head to my sociology class, my day was weird.
And suddenly, I remember driving around with my mother's sunglasses on - very dark ones, unlike the brown ones I am used to...(I lost my sunglasses) - and seeing fresh flowers on their trees as they glowed. And only then did it feel like Spring.
