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.

I started this blog in 2006 as a joke. Now that I look back, I have decided to take it seriously!

Thank you for pointing to this film that I had never heard of.

I am old enough to have witnessed some of those events.
When I was in high school (which was French) we had more Jews in our class than Christians.
One of our class mates was David Cohen, he was a Sephardic Jew and his name was pronounced (Kohaine).
One day we were told to call him only "Adel" because the kids who did not know him were "teasing" him in the street.
That's when we learned that things were changing, the year was 1969.

We also used to go on our bicycles to visit the Basatin Jewish cemetery near Degla out of curiosity.
We didn't know how important that cemetery was, it is the second oldest Jewish cemetery in the world (after the one in Mount of Olives) that is where Mamonaides is buried, he was a famous philosopher and was also Salah-El-Din court physician.
There is a picture of that cemetery on this web page
