Egypt has not changed without me here. It has welcomed me back with open arms again, ready to carve out a new year. School starts on Sunday, and the apartment is beautiful and filled with incredible people.
I arrived on the first day of Ramadan, which is going more easily than I thought it would be (except for a bit of dry mouth), and had an incredible night of shisha, felucca, suhoor in the streets, and meeting incredible new people and hanging out with everyone that has been absent in my life since July. It has been incredible, and I remember falling in love with Egypt in June – it’s like falling all over again.
