Moving on to Another Light...

"Light a small fire, watch the smoke rise, watch the paths clear, stand in awe of what you’ve done, warm yourself, then move along to light another."--thanks, Dallas Clayton

Amazingly enough, I am writing this from my cozy bed in little snow-covered Winterset just 36 hours from returning to the states. Somehow, my flights went exactly as scheduled, with no glitches, delays, or layovers... AND all of my overweight luggage arrived home on time and nothing broke... That Egyptian luck of mine held strong to the very end.. and for that I'm grateful.

It's really nice to be home, though.. to be honest it still hasn't fully hit me. I woke up at 3am today, because clearly it was time to catch a taxi to the family friday meal at the big house in Maadi.......... clearly... I'm jet lagged, I'm looking forward to being busy with the holidays this weekend and seeing all of my family gathered, but.. It still just doesn't quite seem real.

I'm jet lagged physically and mentally.

My last few days in Egypt were wonderful. We had a BBQ to celebrate my birthday which brought together so many of the great people I met in my travels in Egypt, spent a
lot of time at Beet il Kabir with Ezzat and his family, had one last hoorah with new CAC friends at the facult y formal, and went on a few more adventures around Cairo as I said my goodbyes... I'm going to close this blog out with a few of my recent favorite memories...

Masalama, Masr.... I can't wait until we meet again.....
