رمضان شيكاجو صعب قوي

الصورة لي انا ومنال تحت الثلج أمام مبنى قناة الأيه بيي سي المحلية لمدينة شيكاجو


لأن الواحد في السفر بيكون عاوز ياكل وينبسط ، وبجد الصيام في السفر صعب ، وكمان عشان نصف المجموعة لا تصوم لاختلاف الديانة فالأمر صعب شوية اكتر ..

الحجاب

ساعات .. في نظرات تتآمرية في عيون البعض ، لكن عادي ، الموضوع ان الواحد لما بيكون غريب في حتة بيكون مش نفسه الناس تركز عليه ، لكن الحجاب بيلفت النظر ، بصراحة احساسي اني عاوزة اشيله ن علشان مما ابقاش مختلفة ، في محجبات شفتهم ، واحدة في السينما ، واحدة في القطار وواحدة في محل ملابس ، وواحدة في المطعم المغربي اللي رحنا نفطر فيه

بالأمس ذهبت مع مايك ووسام ومحمد الى مبارة كرة قدم (وده له بوست لوحده )

Be yourself , one thing I learned about this country it's a country that you can be whatever and whoever you wanna be and people will tolerate you , it's a country that you can practice your religious freedom even more than your own country (I know that Sherif might disagree with me but I’m talking about my own experience living in the states , England and other European countries ), my wife is American (calling herself Egyptian) she’s Muslim and she veiled and she’s PROUD .
It’s probably your first trip out of Egypt or to a non-Arab country , what you feel is normal it’s a reflection to what you feel inside you (you know like wearing tight pants you don’t usually wear and you feel that everybody is staring at you , but they actually not)

But I have to admit Ramadan or Eids doesn’t feel anything here like in Egypt , but one get used to it .
And maybe (if one's lucky) one get to spend few days of Ramadan every 3 or 4 yrs in Egypt

what an irony that a person wishes not to be a different person, in a country which is originally based on diversity of language, culture, origin, and religion!

many people migrated to the states in order to feel their difference freely..

i remember a comment by anis mansour (from one of whose books i insipred the title of a blog of mine) about a visit he paid to the states in the 1960s.. "just the new generation (then) who say they're americans.. if u asked people of the older one, they say they're french, italian, what so ever"..

with the caution a stranger should pay in any place he goes to, feel egyptian!
