Egypt horizons…time out between history and reality

It is undoubtedly that the GREAT civilization in this Country left no place for more to offer for Millenia to come… however …people here have one of Akins way of living that is really beyond ordinary thinking .. it leaves you with wide laughing eyes in total disbelief .. is this real? You ask yourself with shock .. and just a few miles later it turns out to be just the norm….

So you are peacefully watching the beauty of the Nile and the landscape the boat passes by when you hear noises from the sea… people talking and you are in the middle of the water it could not be !! But you are in the land of the temples of all the gods… everything is possible.

Too young men in a small boat hitched somehow with our boat and simply calling out for their merchandise to sell.. I was beyond belief … I just loved it with mixed feelings of happiness and fear .. maybe empathy and appreciation… it felt unique and unbelievable. But less than half an hour later sellers were on the deck trying to sell in the same style . Throw the product .. you catch .. you bargain and then you pay… a very organized operation.. all this takes place in the seam of passing the boat from the channel to the other side of the river . In that moment , boats start to smuggle from one side to another and what was an unbelievable scene became part of the whole equation of the place…

It still feels amazingly creative … funny … in many ways sad ..thinking of the dangers , risks , the non-stoppable attempts to sell…..at any cost ..

Exploring my own Shoes ... somehow my walk , my way ... Being a woman is one thing . One important thing of originally two things. However, living in a global patriarchal dominance makes one thing dominant of another . A lifetime struggle of women resilience for being the one thing they are Women . All the resilience of being a woman is another ONE thing . For being a Moslem woman is another thing . Being a Moslem woman living in an Occupied land is definitely a totally other thing. What if you add divorce to this ? Being a Woman, a Moslem , a Palestinian and Divorced … makes the introduction to living in my shoes… Living in a Shoe of a Woman. PS. English is not my first language.. I know I often need to edit , however, there is something in the power of the 'click send' button.. ever since I did it the first time .. I enjoy clicking directly from my heart...unedited...
