An Egyptian living in Europe but her heart stayed back home. Having some random thoughts about the before and after pictures. Ghawayesh means bracelets. In my context it symbolizes the cuffs of my culture. I don't know if I like them or hate them. Thanks for passing by.

Royal Dinner, Brunch, Pool, Lunch, Zoo!!!!!!
So we went! The whole tribe just went to His Majesty's house for a swim!!!! Of course my son's first question had to be embarrassing as hell: "Wow. You are the king? Where is your crown?" :/
I was too cold to swim though. I stayed with his majesty for a chat about the future of Egypt. He is a man who truly cares. He really wholeheartedly and sincerely would leave everything behind to go back home and help rebuild what has been destroyed!
He suddenly stood up and said: "It's time to watch Egyptian TV." I stood and followed him to his study. It was better than any dream: He sat there watching TV, behind him the flag of Egypt before the 1952 revolution, and before him was the post-revolution flag. It was like his love of Egypt was unconditional!
As soon as the TV was on, it suddenly hit me: It's 23 July!!!!! 59 years ago, his father King Farouk lost his crown to the revolution! He was watching the speech of General Tantawy with a lot of attention and compassion. As soon as it finished, he turned towards me, smiled and whispered: Ta7ya Masr. I was so emotional and was trying very hard not to turn out into a wleyya with loads of tears and barabeer.
Then we had his favorite lunch. It was so beautiful to see him enjoying Egyptian food so far away from home. =(
Then he offered to have some pictures with us! Still shaking my head!
I thought after that he would kick us out or something. Guess what!! He said he wanted to take the boys to the zoo!!
Come again your Majesty? :O
So he took us to the zoo!! I have never had so much fun in a zoo in my entire miserable life!
I'm still in shock. Could someone who's so high be so humble?
God save the King.
